AN INNOVATIVE ONLINE NEUROPSYCHOLOGY: WHY CHOOSE IT?

1. Why study in human cognitive alterations (attention, memory, decision making, learning) caused by brain lesions or focal or diffuse dysfunction, congenital or acquired, genetically determined:

-learning and behavioral deficits in children (Deficit from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, specific learning disorders) and in brain aging (Mild cognitive impairment, dementia);

-cognitive-behavioural deficits in adults and children after trauma or brain injury (attention, written and spoken language, memory and voluntary movement, learning)

2. Because it is based on the scientific method and interfaces with other disciplines such as psychology, Neurology, psychiatry and neuroscience.
