CERTIFICATE COURSE IN NEUROPSYCHOLOGY

Life can be very tough for those who encounter cognitive impairments as a result of illness, brain damage, or the development of a mental health issue. Combining psychology and neuroscience, neuropsychology sheds light on how mental and behavioural disorders might present themselves. For individuals in the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, medical and biological sciences, teaching, research, or psychiatric nursing, this course is ideal.

You will gain a better grasp of how neurobiological processes affect a person’s personality, behaviour, and mental processes as well as the changes that might result from brain damage in this course.
