Conference paper


Modern neuropsychiatry is the psychiatric discipline that focuses primarily on the care of patients with major psychiatric disorders and with brain diseases that disrupt behavior. It requires clinical skills drawn from both psychiatry and neurology. Fundamentally, neuropsychiatric researchers explore the brain substrates of psychopathology, investigating the neurobiology of disordered emotion, cognition, and behavior (Coffey 1999).
