Fundamentals of Neuropsychology, Neurodiagnostics and Correction




What is a Neuropsychological Diagnosis?
Neuropsychological diagnostics is a compulsory examination of mental processes with the help of special tests for determining the state of higher mental functions, revealing violations of their connection with pathology, individual features or the functional state of certain parts of the brain.

Diagnostic tests are used to determine in which particular brain blocks (energy, information processing and storage or programming, regulation and control) there are disorders (defects, peculiarities).

A wide range of neuropsychological examination techniques is used to establish where the brain structures are affected or underdeveloped.
