Understanding how the brain works and the resulting behaviors is science that leads to better health outcomes.

Neuropsychology

Loading
Clinical neuropsychology is the assessment of brain-behavior relationships through a series of tests, usually conducted in a “pen and paper” format. It has been referred to as a “functional CAT scan,” whereby an individual’s patterns of performance allow the neuropsychologist to make inferences regarding brain pathology and its impact on the individual's functioning. A neuropsychological evaluation is useful for any situation in which there is suspected impairment or change in an individual’s cognitive (i.e., thinking abilities), psychological, or behavioral functioning. 

A neuropsychologist has a doctorate in clinical psychology (PhD or PsyD), with additional training in neuropsychology (typically including a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology).
