CPSYC 4702 Clinical Neuropsychology

This course builds upon the information learned from cognitive psychology in providing an examination of the brain-behavior relationships of major neuropsychological deficits and disorders. Emphasis will be on clinical presentations, differential diagnosis, and neuroanatomical correlates. Topics include the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral symptoms associated with various dementias, infectious diseases, vascular disease, alcohol and substance abuse, head trauma, and seizure disorders. We will also consider attention deficit/hyperactivity, learning disorders, emotion disorders, and the application of neuropsychology to forensic settings (i.e. criminal and litigation cases).
