- Intercerebral hemorrhages
Neuropsychologists specialize in how brain function relates to psychology and behavior. Specifically, clinical neuropsychologists use neuroimaging tools and neuropsychological testing to find any physical abnormality in the brain that affects mental process, like cognition, memory, impulse control and mood regulation.
Additional neurology care team members
- Neuroimaging Specialist: A neuroimaging specialist is an expert in the use of high-resolution imaging tools. Some of the tools they use are functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and electroencephalography.
- Neurodevelopmental and Neuromuscular Neurologists: Neurodevelopmental and neuromuscular neurologists can improve the quality of life for patients who are diagnosed with neurological conditions that affect their long-term development, such as cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. Patients with these conditions often require a lifetime of care.
- Pain Management and Palliative Care Neurologists: Neurologists can specialize in pain management for neurological conditions can lead to chronic pain, or progressive deterioration of a mobility and mental capacity. These treatments often use a combination of drugs and therapy to help patients manage their pain levels.
