Neuropsychology, Mental Health and Brain Disorders

A section of Psychology International (ISSN 2813-9844).

Section Information

It is well known that most psychiatric disorders are associated with cognitive impairment and that neuropsychological approaches can help unravel the mechanisms and factors underlying mental and brain disorders. Neuropsychology provides tools and insights to help psychiatrists, patients and other stakeholders to develop a better understanding of how, why, and in what capacity these disorders and symptoms occur. The main goal of this section is to understand the development of neuropsychological approaches to the investigation, description, measurement and management of a wide range of mental illnesses and brain disorders. Another goal is to better explain the rationale for examining neuropsychological processes within the clinical disorders. We hope to bring together the perspectives of neuroscientists, psychiatrists and philosophers.
