Applied Neuropsychology

This COURSE will equip students intending to become clinical psychologists, as well as those who wish to pursue a career involving contact with patients with neuropsychological deficits (eg Head injury, dementia, stroke, rehabilitation, etc). It also provides an excellent grounding for students wishing to move on to further academic research through a PhD. The programme content includes principles of assessment within clinical and neuropsychology, coverage of a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies affecting the brain, techniques for studying the human brain, principles of treatment and rehabilitation following brain damage, and also focuses on evidence-based practice within the clinical context. There is a comprehensive range of additional structured tutorials in which students can discuss clinical practice issues with a range of subject matter experts working within the NHS.
