WHAT IS NEUROPSYCHOLOGY?
Clinical Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that focuses on brain function. A neuropsychological evaluation consists of the administration of specific tests to assess functioning in select areas of the brain. One goal of an evaluation is to uncover any underlying conditions that may contribute to problems processing information and functioning optimally. Another goal is to devise interventions to enhance treatment planning, improve symptom management, and optimize overall quality of life.
A neuropsychologist is a psychologist who has completed two full years of post-doctoral training in neuropsychology with formal educational and clinical activities focused on basic neurosciences, functional neuroanatomy, neuropathology, clinical neurology, assessment, and psychological intervention.
