Teaching Assistants: To be announced Outline of the Course: Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that deals with normal and abnormal behaviour as determined by the neural substrates. The traditional and most popular approach would be to gain insights with the help of unfortunate “experiments of nature” in the form of disorders or syndromes. On many occasions, classical case reports have been the “textbooks” for neuropsychology. Owing to the recent advancement in the non-invasive tools of investigations such as functional neuroimaging and electrophysiology, it has become possible to study the healthy individuals or animals while they are performing various tasks. In this course we will use syndromic approach, case-study approach and on several occasions study the healthy subjects.
