Specialization and Extension in Neuropsychology

 

Neuropsychology is a specialty that is characterized by the study of the relationship between brain, cognition and emotion. Multidisciplinary, has been expanding its applicability in the fields of health and education, from diagnosis to rehabilitation of various cognitive disorders. Featuring a faculty of neurologists and neuropsychologists renowned, the course provides technical and scientific knowledge up to date, diversified practice and provides methodological support to the student of expertise to apply for the master's degree in Neurology.

OBJECTIVE

Empower theoretical, clinical and methodological psychologists and physicians to perform diagnostic and neuropsychological orientation and act in research and rehabilitation of neurological patients.
