What is Neuropsychiatry?
Neuropsychiatry is the interface of Psychiatry and Neurology that deals with mental disorders, which in most cases can be shown to have their origin from an identifiable brain malfunction.
Neuropsychiatry can be defined as a sub-specialty of Psychiatry, aiming to understand the link between the mind, body and its behaviour.
The training of Neuropsychiatrist in both organic (neurological) and psychiatric aspects of illness places them in unique position to deliver this care.
Neuropsychiatrist work alongside other Neuroscience clinicians, such as a neurologist and neurosurgeon, in order to provide comprehensive care of patients within the context of a multi-disciplinary setup.
