PYH403 Cognitive Neuropsychology

In this unit you will learn about major neuroanatomical structures and their interconnections, with an emphasis on how this information is applied in the clinical setting. You will also study a number of neuropsychological disorders in terms of their diagnosis, assessment and treatment, and the psychosocial effects such deficits have on the patients and their families. The deficits themselves will also be considered from a cognitive perspective, with a view not only to understand the nature of the dysfunction but also to further specify our knowledge regarding the functional architecture of the cognitive system.
