What Is Neuropsychology?

Put simply, clinical neuropsychologists diagnose and treat the psychological and behavioral effects of brain disorders.

But what is Neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology is the interdisciplinary branch of psychology that deals with the relationship between the nervous system (especially the brain), and mental functions such as language, memory, and perception.

Clinical neuropsychologists have extensive knowledge of the brain; use neuropsychological tests to accurately assess cognitive deficits; and practice the treatment and rehabiliation of brain injured and neurocognitively impaired patients.
