The Division of Neuropsychology exists to support its members with training and advice, and to keep them apprised of ongoing news and developments within the field.
In recent years neuropsychology has been one of the most exciting areas of science.
Advances in technology have revealed many of the secrets of structure-function relationships in the living brain, their development across the lifespan and the impact of disease, injury and degeneration.
These rapid advances have opened up many new research and clinical possibilities and so staying informed and up-to-date has never been so important.
Our membership has a powerful voice in raising the profile of neuropsychology, developing standards and advancing the discipline.
One of the primary purposes of the Division of Neuropsychology (DoN) is to champion the work of our members and the contribution psychology can make to society through lots of different channels, particularly through our regular conferences and events.
COVID-19 Executive SummaryShow content
The Division of Neuropsychology supports the appropriate use of remote technologies when undertaking clinical neuropsychology work in the context of the current COVID 19 pandemic.
Careful consideration on a case-by-case basis must be given as to whether use of tele-neuropsychology is necessary and will address the current need of the patient/client.
Guidance for those planning tele-neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation/treatment is provided but should be interpreted in the context of local guidance from employers and other host organisations.
Published studies indicate that remote administration of some neuropsychological tests can produce reliable and valid results, though the evidence base is limited.
The assessment of young children, adults with learning disabilities, and many older adults will require specific further consideration.
