Master's Degree in Neuropsychology

Curriculum designed with the most up-to-date tools in terms of neuropsychological assessment

In the era of Neurosciences, Neuropsychology was born to join in the goal shared with other scientific disciplines to understand the human brain, focusing its efforts on behavioral manifestations and higher processes associated with its normal and altered functioning. These alterations may be due to sudden brain damage, the appearance of a neurodegenerative disease or neurodevelopmental disorders. The work of the Neuropsychologist, the specialist in evaluating, reporting and rehabilitating impaired cognitive functions, is essential.

The general objective of this Master's Degree is to comprehensively train students in Neuropsychology, developing a professional profile capable of evaluating the cognitive deficits associated with different neuropsychological disorders and offering intervention and neurorehabilitation tools for any neuropsychological alteration in clinical practice.

Thanks to this master's degree, you will learn to:

  • Identify normal and altered behavior due to acquired brain damage, neurodegenerative disease, or neurodevelopmental disorders.
  • Perform a neuropsychological evaluation and prepare a report.
  • Select and design effective neuropsychological intervention proposals.
