Neuropsychiatry is the medical specialty that deals with the relationships between a person’s behaviour and their brain activity. It is said to be the neurological aspects of psychiatry and the psychiatric aspects of neurology.
A neuropsychiatrist is a physician who is considered qualified in neuropsychiatry through either primary training in psychiatry or neurology followed by a period of at least one year of fellowship training in neuropsychiatry or behavioural neurology, or formal residency training in both psychiatry and neurology.
Neuropsychiatrists deal with mental disorders that are attributable to some form of neural disease or dysfunction such as ADHD and Alzheimer’s.
The British Neuropsychiatry Association (BNPA) is the principal academic and professional body for neuropsychiatrists in the UK.
