Hi Shavone,

On a daily basis, Clinical Neuropsychologists apply theories and principles of neuropsychology to diagnose and treat disorders of higher cerebral functioning. They also write or prepare detailed clinical neuropsychological reports, using data from psychological or neuropsychological tests, self-report measures, rating scales, direct observations, or interviews.

Other tasks include:

Conduct neuropsychological evaluations such as assessments of intelligence, academic ability, attention, concentration, sensorimotor function, language, learning, and memory.
Interview patients to obtain comprehensive medical histories.
Diagnose and treat conditions involving injury to the central nervous system, such as cerebrovascular accidents, neoplasms, infectious or inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases, head traumas, demyelinating diseases, and various forms of dementing illnesses.
Provide education or counseling to individuals and families.
Read current literature, talk with colleagues, and participate in professional organizations or conferences to keep abreast of developments in neuropsychology.
Establish neurobehavioral baseline measures for monitoring progressive cerebral disease or recovery.

Neuropsychology is a discipline that is primarily concerned with cognition. Neuropsychologists can have a number of different job functions, from examining the effects of traumatic brain injuries on a person's mood, behavior, and ability to think , to exploring how effective different treatments are for individuals whose brain functioning has been diminished. Many neuropsychologists work in the research sector. Other work in clinical settings. The path to becoming a neuropsychologist is a long one, with a bachelor's degree, master's degree, doctorate, and several years of postdoctoral work required. Average salaries for a neuropsychologist in the United States is $126,217 a year, but can be as high as $188,000 and as low as $72,500.
