This course will examine the relationship between brain function and behavior, especially the evaluation and treatment of individuals across the lifespan with cognitive deficits and brain compromise (e.g., due to injury, neurodevelopmental or degenerative processes, toxic exposure, etc.). The material is interdisciplinary, integrating across various sub-disciplines of medicine (e.g., neurology, psychiatry, radiology) and subfields of psychology (e.g. neuroscience, abnormal, assessment, cognitive, health). Clinical cases and research reports will be used to illustrate and characterize neuropsychological phenomena, conditions, and diagnoses. The course objectives will be accomplished through lecture, readings, and discussion as well as via experiential and service learning opportunities.
