Course Content (Syllabus)
Navigating through everyday life is a complex process, which requires effective processing of information and adjustment to the environment. The healthy human brain is efficient enough to cope with most common everyday tasks and demands.This course reviews the relevance of clinical neuropsychology to everyday functioning and our ability to predict performance in the real world from assessments in the laboratory or clinic. More specifically in this course we will (1) explore the rationale, theory, and practical aspects of assessing everyday functioning, (2) assess the ecological validity of neuropsychological procedures and (3) review the impact of neurological and psychiatric conditions on the performance in the real-world (such as work, managing finances, or driving).
