Definition of neuropsychology


Neuropsychology is a relatively young profession that deals with the relationship between the functions of the brain on the one hand and behavior and experience on the other; thus it is located between the departments of psychology and neurology. Behavior is interpreted relatively broadly. In addition to motor skills, this also includes so-called “higher cognitive performance” such as attention and concentration skills, learning and memory skills, language understanding and production, reading and writing, complex visual skills, reasoning and action planning as well as the personality of the person.

As a result of damaging influences, the functioning of the brain can either be temporarily or permanently disturbed. Permanent malfunctions occur primarily in neurological diseases such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumor, epilepsy, dementia, etc. The loss of performance can now be very specific and depends, among other things, on which areas of the brain are affected by the damage. However – especially in developmental neuropsychology – there are cognitive functional impairments or developmental disorders even without visible brain damage (language development disorder after birth-related lack of oxygen, hyperactivity and / or learning disorder in premature babies etc.).

Diagnostic field

  • Attention / concentration
  • Learning / memory
  • Seeing and visual perception
  • Spatial and constructive services
  • Intelligence services / executive functions (forward planning and action)
  • Development of psychodynamic relationships in the development of the disease (psychosomatics)

Primarily used here psychological Testing with the help of possible underperformance or talents can be determined. It is carried out using a computer or paper / pencil forms.

field of work therapy

  • Neurotraining the impaired performance
  • Psychotherapeutic help in coping with illnesses of patients and relatives / information about the illness
  • Psychotherapeutic treatment
  • Relaxation exercises / biofeedback (muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, coping with pain, migraines)

The focus here is on repeated, intensive contact with the patient. Based on the available resources, we try to reduce or compensate for deficits as well as possible and to achieve the highest possible quality of life as part of psychological treatment.
