- how the brain mediates these psychological functions;
- the consequences of brain damage;
- how to treat disorders.
Disorders can be caused by a wide range of aetiologies, such as an accident, a stroke, neural degeneration (Alzheimer’s, Wernicke-Korsakov syndrome), or developmental defects (dyslexia, ADHD, autism).
