Specialisation courses are offered as a tool for establishing a gradual and systematic introduction to knowledge of neuropsychology.

These courses form part of the Master's degree in Neuropsychology and Behavioural Neurology and they cover the fundamental perspectives of neuropsychology, such as an introduction to neuropsychology and behavioural neurology, neuropsychological exploration, semiology and neurological and neuropathological bases, and from a more specialised perspective the neuropsychology of language, child neuropsychology and forensic neuropsychology.

The courses are structured sequentially from introduction to specialisation but can be taken independently.
