WHAT IS NEUROPSYCHOLOGY?
Neuropsychology is the study of brain-behavior relationships and how brain mechanisms mediate human behavior. Clinical neuropsychologists use this knowledge to evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate individuals with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems.

A clinical neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related to brain structures and systems. In clinical neuropsychology, brain function is evaluated by objectively testing memory and thinking skills. A very detailed assessment of abilities is used to determine an individual's specific pattern of strengths and weaknesses. This is used in important health care areas, such as diagnosis and treatment planning through consultation with the individual's physician and other treatment professionals.
