What is Neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology is a specialty that combines the fields of neuroscience and psychology and deals with the brain and its relationship to behavior. The brain is the most complex organ of the body and controls intellectual functioning, speech and language, the perception of touch, hearing, and vision, memory, attention, personality and the coordination of all movement. Because neurological disorders, such as traumatic brain injury or concussion, stroke, brain tumors, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease or multiple sclerosis, and developmental disorders, such as Learning Disabilities, dyslexia, Autism or Asperger’s Disorder, may affect any of these functions, neuropsychological evaluation is an important part of diagnosis and treatment planning.
