What Is Neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology is a specialty that focuses on brain functioning. A neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related to brain structures and systems. Neuropsychology evaluates brain function by testing memory and thinking skills.
