Neuropsychology is a branch of clinical psychology that studies how the brain and nervous system affect how people function on a daily basis. Neuropsychology seeks to understand how the various components of the brain are able to do their jobs. Clinical neuropsychology uses various assessment methods to ascertain function and dysfunction and applies this knowledge to evaluate, treat and rehabilitate individuals with suspected or demonstrated neurological or psychological problems.
A clinical Neuropsychologist works within the field of psychology with special expertise in the applied science of brain-behavior relationships. Clinical Neuropsychologists assess, diagnosis, treat patients across the lifespan with neurological, medical, neurodevelopmental and psychiatric conditions, as well as other cognitive and learning disorders. The clinical Neuropsychologist uses psychological, neurological, cognitive, behavioral, and physiological principles, techniques and tests to evaluate patients’ neurocognitive, behavioral, and emotional strengths and weaknesses and their relationship to normal and abnormal central nervous system functioning.
