neuropsychiatry, neuro-psychiatry (s) (noun)
; neuropsychiatries, neuro-psychiatries (pl)
1. Psychiatry that relates mental or emotional disturbance to disordered brain function; neurology and psychiatry as a single discipline.
2. The specialty dealing with both organic and psychic disorders of the nervous system; this is an earlier term for psychiatry
Behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry are disciplines within the clinical neurosciences that focus on the clinical and pathological aspects of neural processes associated with cognition, emotion, and behavior.
Advances in structural and functional brain imaging, clinical electrophysiology, and experimental psychology over the last decades produced a significant growth in the clinical neurosciences, and changed fundamentally the manner in which normal and disturbed cognition, emotion, and behavior are understood clinically.
neuropsychology (s) (noun)
, neuropsychologies (pl)
1. The field of study concerned with the relationship between behavior and the mind on the one hand, and the nervous system; especially, the brain, on the other; neurological psychology.
2. A specialty of psychology concerned with the study of the relationships between the brain and behavior, including the use of psychological tests and assessment techniques to diagnose specific cognitive and behavioral deficits and to prescribe rehabilitation strategies for their remediation.
Pertaining to diseased states of the nervous and mental functions.
neuropsychopathy (s) (noun)
, neuropsychopathies (pl)
An emotional illness of neurologic and functional origin: Neuropsychopathy can also be described as being a mental ailment indicated by a disease of the sensory and control system that contain a network of nerve cells in a person's body.
neuropsychopharmacology (s) (noun)
, neuropsychopharmacologies (pl)
1. A branch of medical science combining neuropharmacology and psychopharmacology.
2. The study of the effect of drugs and medicines on psychological processes.
An interdisciplinary science related to psychopharmacology (how drugs affect the mind) and fundamental neuroscience. It entails research of mechanisms of neuropathology, pharmacodynamics (drug action), psychiatric illness, and states of consciousness. These studies are instigated at the detailed level involving neurotransmission or neuroreceptor activity, bio-chemical processes, and neural circuitry.
neuropsychosis (s) (noun)
, neuropsychoses (pl)
A neurotic condition in which certain features characteristic of a psychosis can be recognized.
An inflammation affecting the optic nerve head and the posterior pole of the retina, with cells in the nearby vitreous (glasslike), usually producing a macular (central retina) star.
neuroretinopathy (s) (noun)
, neuroretinopathies (pl)
A disease of the optic disk and retina: One example of neuroretinopathy is the swelling of the optic disk and formation of serous and fibrinous precipitates in the retina, occurring in severe hypertension.
Radiology of the nervous system.
A form of cancer that arises in the supportive tissues; such as, bone, cartilage, fat, or muscle.
neuroscience (s) (noun)
, neurosciences (pl)
1. A scientific discipline that studies nerve cells or the nervous system; such as, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, or all such disciplines collectively.
2. The scientific study of the molecular and cellular levels of the nervous system, or systems within the brain; such as, vision and hearing, and of behavior produced by the brain.
