PSYC31H3 Clinical Neuropsychology

Clinical neuropsychology is an applied science concerned with the behavioural expression of brain dysfunction. In this course we will first examine the brain and localization of neuropsychological function. We will then explore the science and practice of clinical neuro-psychology where tests measuring different neuropsychological domains (e.g., memory, attention and so on) are employed in patient populations to infer brain dysfunction. Students in the Specialist (Co-operative) Program in Mental Health Studies should enrol in PSYC73H3, not in this course.
