What is Neuropsychiatry?

Neuropsychiatry is a subspecialty of medicine that focuses on the relationship between neurological disorders (neurology) and mental disorders (psychiatry). Our clinicians are subspecialty-trained in both behavioral neurology/neuropsychiatry and psychiatry, and treat a wide variety of patients with disorders of the nervous system (brain injury or disease) that also have psychiatric problems. These mental problems may manifest as disturbances of perception or motivation, or as issues with speech and language.

The core neuropsychiatry diseases that we treat include autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, traumatic and other types of acquired brain injury, demyelinating diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and atherosclerosis.
