Concluding Remarks


Neuropsychology has a long and proud history. It grew out of behavioral neurology and psychology and developed into a full-fledged discipline. So much of cognition and behavior is meaningful only when studied in relation to the brain – and this is where neuropsychology has successfully demonstrated its unique focus. Clinical neuropsychology and experimental neuropsychology have been the tracks that have formerly defined the discipline for more than half a century.
