The field of clinical neuropsychology is dedicated to understanding brain-behavior relationships, or the way brain function influences our ability to think, feel, and behave in everyday life.
About The Clinical Neuropsychology Program Specialty
In clinical settings, neuropsychologists work with individuals across the lifespan with known or suspected brain-based disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Kent State University faculty in clinical neuropsychology work closely to train the next generation of clinical scientists. Graduate students have the opportunity for hands-on clinical experiences with multiple patient populations and clinical settings. Students also have the chance to take part in cutting edge research through multiple campus- and hospital-based projects. Detailed information can be found at: www.kentneuropsychology.com.
Please note, the Clinical Neuropsychology provides specialization in adult and geriatric neuropsychology. We do not at present offer a track for pediatric neuropsychology.
The Clinical Neuropsychology Specialty has been modeled after the Houston Conference and APA Division 40 guidelines. Graduates of the Clinical Neuropsychology specialty meet criteria set forth by the Clinical Neuropsychology Synarchy for a “Major Area of Study”.
