Aims The module will introduce students to the principles of neuropsychological assessment, provide an understanding of the pathophysiology of common diseases causing neuropsychological disability, and a foundation in functional neuroanatomy and neurological localisation relevant to the practice of clinical neuropsychology. It will also introduce students to neuropsychological disorders frequently encountered in clinical practice such as amnesia, aphasia, neglect, visuospatial impairment, agnosia, alexia, apraxia, and dysexecutive disorders.

Comprehensive and accurate coverage of the area clarity of argument and expression. Evidence provided from lecture material as well as reading. Depth of insight into disgnosis, assessment and classification.
Reasonably comprehensive coverage. Well organised and structured. Good understanding of the material with few errors but less evidence of clear understanding.
Adequate answer to the question, largely based on lecture material. No real development of arguments, evidence of insight, or extra reading.
Demonstrate the ability to integrate information from the neurological history and examination to generate hypotheses guiding neuropsychological assessment.
Demonstrate an understanding of the pathophysiology of common neurological diseases (including stroke and traumatic brain injury) causing neuropsychological disability, and the ability to integrate this knowledge for generating hypotheses guiding neuropsychological assessment.
Describe the purpose of neuropsychological assessment, and review potential pitfalls in interpreting assessment data.
Demonstrate a working knowledge of functional neuroanatomy relevant to neuropsychological disorders.
