The Department of Neuropsychiatry at DESUN focuses on the evaluation and treatment of patients with syndromes that lie at the interface of psychiatry and neurology. The department is populated by academic clinicians and researchers with expertise in cognitive, emotional, perceptual and behavioral symptoms associated with localised brain dysfunction. Trained in a variety of disciplines like neurology, psychiatry, behavioral neurology, neuropsychology, epileptology and functional neuroimaging, they are able to provide evaluation and treatment to individuals with complex clinical conditions that may not be fully understood elsewhere.
