What is Neuropsychology?
It helps understand brain - behaviour relationships
Anyone who has had a brain injury or neurological condition has probably undergone lots of medical tests. Whilst we often wish we could see inside the skull, the imaging results tell us a lot about structure of the brain, and less about function.
Neuropsychology looks at function. It uses lots of tests of cognitive function (memory, thinking, concentration, problem solving, speed of processing etc) to understand how those structural findings are (or are not) impacting on cognition. This information can help us answer lots of important information to help you plan ahead.
