Neuropsychology

 
 

 

 

 

Neuropsychology is the study of the structures and functions of the brain and how they related to certain psychological processes and behaviors. It’s a field in psychology that aims at understanding how behavior and cognition are coded for by the brain. Neuropsychology is also essential for the diagnosis and treatment of many psychological, behavioral and neurological disorders as many behavioral and emotional problems can be due to pure medical/neurological diseases, not due to psychological diseases, hence the name: “Neuro”-psychology.

 

Clinical neuropsychology is the application of neuropsychological knowledge to the assessment (neuropsychological measurement and tests), management, and rehabilitation of people who have suffered disease or traumas to the brain. Many patients present with emotional problems such as aggressiveness, agitation and depression whereas in fact the original problem is a neurological problem ex: Brain stroke. Neuropsychological testing and brain imaging complete each other to confirm a diagnosis because the treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis. Neuropsychologists use many tests to assess intelligence, attention, concentration, memory, cognition, speech, language, movement …

 

Nawfal Clinics team includes professionals specialized in Clinical Neuropsychology ready to assess brain related disorders and diseases (Neuro-based psychological diseases), including speech and language problems. We use specific tests to depict the brain lesion that is behind certain diseases such as Alzheimer Disease, other forms of Dementia (Lewi Body Demetia, Fronto-Temporal Dementia), Broca’s and Wernicke’s Aphasias, Apraxias, Strokes, Epilepsy/Seizure related behavioral changes, Personality changes, Mood changes (Depression and Anxiety due to a Neurological problem), Hallucinations as well as other psychotic symptoms which are not psychiatric in origin, but rather neurological.

 

We collaborate with psychiatrists and neurologists in Lebanon and in Europe and the United-States to diagnose and treat neuropsychological disorders.
