Neuropsychiatry/Behavioral Neurology

The Neuropsychiatry / Behavioral Neurology Program

Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurology are disciplines among the clinical neurosciences that focus on the clinical and pathological aspects of neural processes associated with cognition, emotion, and behavior. Recent advances in structural and functional brain imaging, clinical electrophysiology, and experimental psychology fostered unprecedented growth in the clinical neurosciences, and have enlightened our understanding of both normal and disturbed cognition, emotion, and behavior.

These technologies and the findings from them complement the clinical interview and examination and extend the core knowledge base and clinical skills that define modern neuropsychiatry and behavioral neurology. A principal goal of this integrative approach is to transcend the mind-brain duality reflected in the separation of psychiatry and neurology.

The Neuropsychiatry / Behavioral Neurology Program consists of the Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Clinics, Consultative Neuropsychiatry/Behavioral Neurology Service, Inpatient Neuropsychiatry/Behavioral Neurology Service, and Electroconvulsive Therapy Service
