Neuropsychology curriculum aims to demonstrate the behavioral, mental and psychological effect and consequences of central nervous system lesion, dysfunctions and diseases. Prior to dysfunctions, the semester teaches and demonstrates psychophysiological and neurobiological mechanisms of perception, attention, memory, language, motivation, emotion, social and other behavioral phenomena related to the healthy, normal brain and CNS. Client and patient case studies will be demonstrated and analysed about dysfunctions and illnesses, thereby providing important and indispensable contribution and preparation for later neurological, psychiatrical, neurosurgical studies, as well as for behavioral and psychosomatic medicine.
