TECH presents this Professional Master’s Degree as a unique opportunity to learn in detail the most innovative intricacies of Clinical Neuropsychology through a 100% online program"

master neuropsicología clínica

The development of Neuropsychology has allowed for a deeper understanding of disorders through the exhaustive study of the relationship between the brain and the behavior of a given clinical case. Thanks to this, specialists in this branch of psychology have been able to perfect their diagnostic strategies based on what is observed in the patient, being able to adapt pharmacological treatments and cognitive-behavioral therapies in a more effective and personalized way, as well as positively influencing the improvement of the patient's quality of life.

However, it is a science that is evolving rapidly, and each year unveils new discoveries, which is why professionals in this sector must constantly update their knowledge in order to be able to offer the best service to their patients, based on the latest science. To this end, TECH and its team of experts in Psychology and Neurology have developed this very complete Professional Master's Degree in Clinical Neuropsychology. 

It is a multidisciplinary and intensive program that will provide graduates with all the information they need to master the latest developments in this discipline. It will explore the bases of clinical neuropsychology, as well as the principles of neuroanatomy, with special emphasis on cognitive functions and the different types of neurobiological bases that are known today. It will also delve into brain damage and aphasia, agraphia and alexia, as well as cognitive deficits and neurodegenerative diseases. Finally, it will focus on the main techniques of neuropsychological evaluation and rehabilitation, and will conclude with an exhaustive review of the most effective pharmacological treatments, their recommendations and the cases in which they should be avoided. 

All of this, through a 100% online program which includes 1500 hours of theoretical, practical and additional material chosen and designed by the teaching team. In addition, all the content will be available from the beginning of the academic program, and can be downloaded to any device with an internet connection for offline viewing, even after the program has been completed. It is, therefore, a unique opportunity to study a program adapted to the needs of the Psychology sector and to the most complex requirements of the profession.

You will be able to gain exhaustive knowledge about the bases and origins of this discipline, delving into the first authors and the most relevant works"

A unique, key, and decisive training experience to boost your professional development” 

Master's Degree in Clinical Neuropsychology

 Understanding the chemical and anatomical structures that influence mental disorders is essential for any psychologist who wishes to master the understanding of the involvement of neurological and biochemical mechanisms in the field of health. At TECH Technological University we contribute to the training of these professionals through this Master's Degree dedicated to Clinical Neuropsychology. This course provides the professional with a comprehensive, complete and up-to-date vision of the effects of neuronal and brain functioning on a patient's relationship with the environment and their behavior. 

A Postgraduate Degree in Neuropsychology 

By studying this one-year postgraduate course, the professional will be able to describe the functioning of the brain and the biochemistry that affects it, understand brain activity in mental disorders, understand the relationship between the central nervous, endocrine and immune systems, and manage psychopharmacology and technologies that can improve the condition of their patients. In this way it is possible to acquire the necessary knowledge to evaluate, diagnose and treat the neurological processes that explain the different psychological disorders and improve the care received by patients.
