Neuro Diseases

The core work of neuropsychiatrists consists of assessing and managing emotional and behavioural aspects of Traumatic Brain Injury, Epilepsy, movement disorders such as Parkinson's Disease or Huntington's Disease, Cerebrovascular Disease and other neurological and neurosurgical disorders. However there is also a role in assessing and managing emotional disorder which may present in a similar way to neurological disorders, and these include conversion disorders, non-epileptic attack disorders, psychogenic movement disorders, and so forth. Finally, there are disorders in the borderland between neurology and psychiatry which are sometimes thought best assisted by neuropsychiatrists, including adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, disorders on the autism spectrum, and certain sleep disorders.
