This course will be an introduction to the clinical application of neuropsychology and neuropsychological assessment. The course will focus on test administration and scoring, together with domains of neurocognitive function, syndromes associated with dysfunction in each domain, and neuropsychological measures utilized in assessing domain-specific performance. Cultural and social variables are also discussed in regard to their impact on both assessment and interpretation of cognitive measures and in choice of appropriate normative comparisons. Measure selection and interpretation will be tailored to typical CNS and psychiatric disorders that the clinician may be expected to encounter in medical and psychiatric settings, including primary dementia, traumatic brain injury, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, depression, and schizophrenia.
