What is neuropsychology?
A fusion of psychology and biology, neuropsychology examines the biological basis for human functioning. This growing field includes the study of healthy brain functioning, like consciousness and memory, as well as complex neurological conditions like movement and mood disorders, dementia and addiction. There is still much to discover about human brain function and its impact on development, attention control, stress, cognition and more.
