Course description

This unit addresses the diagnosis management of developmental and adult neuropsychological disorders. Specifically, the material will cover developmental disabilities, epilepsy and acquired brain injury, focusing on the diagnosis of disorders of attention, memory, language and movement. To follow from PSYC8161 Neuroanatomy for Neuropsychologists , the teaching material will be based on human neuroanatomy and diagnostic neuroscience principles. The theoretical perspective will include principles of cognitive neuropsychology. The first three seminars will cover topics on paediatric disorders. Thereafter, the emphasis will be on rehabilitation of adult neuropsychological disorders. This unit serves as an introduction to the diversity of neuropsychological disorders and their causes.
