Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that is particularly concerned with how psychological processes are related to the brain. Specifically, neuropsychologists have a specialised knowledge of how certain disruptions or traumatic injuries to the brain can affect our everyday functioning and psychological wellbeing.
Of course, all mental events are mediated through the brain – this text you are reading now is mediated through the brain as well as all our interactions and relationships – so aren’t all psychologists neuropsychologists? In a sense this is true, however it is when the brain’s normal functioning is disturbed by one of many possible causes – such as an acquired brain injury or neurological health problem – that a specialist neuropsychologist will be required.
