Module 4: Developmental disorders and neuropsychological profiles

This module describes how cognitive outcome is shaped by aetiological factors and the underlying neuropathology in a range of developmental and acquired brain disorders. The complexity of studying developing brain function in the presence of pathology is illustrated by clinical case studies and syndrome profiles. Neuropsychological outcome following neurosurgical treatment isĀ  considered. Developmental disorders used to illustrate brain-behaviour relationships include neurological disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, sickle cell disease, and traumatic brain injury, neurodevelopmental syndromes such as autistic spectrum disorders, ADHD and dyslexia, and psychiatric problems such as childhood schizophrenia.
