A section of Brain Sciences (ISSN 2076-3425).

Section Information

The Neuropsychology Section aims to bring together research on the relationship between brain and human cognitive, emotional, and behavioral function. Neuropsychological testing typically evaluates individual functioning in a number of areas, including sensorimotor functions, perception, attention, spatial construction, intelligence, executive functions, memory, language, motivation, emotion and quality of life. Articles focusing on neuropsychological functions in both healthy and disordered states and across the lifespan are encouraged. Topic areas include both developmental (e.g., ADHD, dyslexia and other learning disabilities) and adult studies (e.g., cognitive and affective consequences of stroke and traumatic brain injury, as well as progressive conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease). Contributions dealing with the development and testing of neuropsychological interventions are also encouraged. Original empirical research based on both clinical and experimental neuropsychological paradigms, as well as systematic reviews, meta-analyses and theoretical articles, is envisaged. Case studies illustrating important questions about brain–behavior relationships will also be considered.

Topics include (but are not restricted to) the following:

  • Agnosia;
