Neuropsychology

Overview

Neuropsychology is the scientific study of brain-behaviour relationships, and the clinical application of that knowledge to human problems.

A clinical neuropsychologist is a professional psychologist who applies principles of assessment and intervention, based upon the scientific study of human behaviour as it relates to normal and abnormal functioning of the central nervous system.

Currently there are no professional training courses in neuropsychology in Ireland, although a range of courses are available in the UK.

Universities hosting such course include the University of Edinburgh, University of Essex, Institute of Neurology, London, University of Manchester, University of Nottingham, Oxford Brookes University and University College London.

It is also possible to complete a postgraduate degree by research in the area of neuropsychology and this can help develop a career in the area.
