Neuropsychology

BMG Neuropsychology

What is the connection between human behavior, emotion, cognition, and brain function? That is the main question the field of neuropsychology strives to address for patients experiencing brain injuries or diseases.

Clinical neuropsychology is a sub-specialty of clinical psychology. When a person has a brain injury or a brain disease, it can impact overall brain function by altering behavior, emotions, and even cognition (thinking, understanding, learning and remembering). Physicians who specialize in the field of neuropsychology focus on the assessment and treatment of patients with brain injuries or diseases in addition to the behavior, emotion and cognition functions of the brain.
