Division of Neuropsychology

About Us

Neuropsychology is the study of the relationships between brain processes and cognitive and behavioural phenomena.  It deals with how the brain performs the acts of thinking, reasoning and remembering allowing us to function on a day to day basis. 

Clinical Neuropsychologists apply an advanced understanding of cognitive and psychological processes to the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and / or rehabilitation of people with neurological, neuropsychiatric, medical or neurodevelopmental conditions.  

The Division of Neuropsychology is the body within PSI promoting evidence-based clinical neuropsychological practice and research. The Division was established in September 2009 from the PSI Special Interest Group in Neuropsychology.

Linking with external bodies, the Division promotes development of services and policies, seeking to optimise access to high quality care for people with neurological, neuropsychiatric, medical or neurodevelopmental conditions.  The Division is committed to development of structures and guidelines for the continued advancement of Clinical Neuropsychology practice and research nationally. 

The Division strives to share high quality training and educational opportunities among its membership with active engagement through various channels.
