Neuropsychology Introduction

An easy to understand exploration of neuropsychological difficulties

  Enroll in Course

This course is an easy to understand introduction to the key functions of the brain. The student will be introduced to the four main lobes in the brain - the frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital lobes - and then learn about what can happen if damage or injury occurs in these regions.

The course is punctuated with tasks to carry out which are aimed at providing the student with an inside view of what it might feel like for the person suffering from various brain impairments.

The course is aimed at anyone working within a mental health setting - psychologists, counsellors, therapists as well as those who work with people suffering from dementia and brain injury. It is also suitable to anyone who has a general interest and fascination with the area of neuropsychological difficulty.
