A neuropsychologist is a psychologist who specializes in studying brain-behaviour relationships. Neuropsychologists have training in the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system and specialize in evaluating (and treating) people. They focus on cognition (the ability to think, remember, learn, etc.) in relation to the effects of brain injury, organic brain disease, or any condition that impacts on cognitive functions.
