Department of Neuropsychology
Neuropsychology is the science of understanding brain-behavior relationships. It offers insight into the complex interaction of brain structure and functions and specific psychological processes that finally result in the behaviour we see in a patient after brain insult. It can be, in some ways, taken as the combination of the neuroscience and psychology. The field requires an expert understanding of both the neurological as well as the psychological implications of the structure and functioning of the brain.

Diagnosis and Treatment
Various neurological disorders impact the brain function. The neuropsychologist uses standardized, well established tests, to evaluate the status and level of brain dysfunction in the patient. The neuropsychological testing brings out the profile of relative strengths and impairments in the various cognitive domains such as memory, attention, language, visual spatial, executive function., etc. This understanding helps the neurologist reach a diagnosis as well as plan the management of the patient more effectively. This data also helps the neuropsychologist plan and intervene for recovery with cognitive re training, rehabilitation strategies and counselling for the patient and family.
