Neuropsychiatry & Biological Psychiatry 

Neuropsychiatry is a medical specialty that combines neurology and psychiatry to address organic disturbances in the central nervous system that give rise to mental diseases. Biological psychiatry is an interdisciplinary field that draws on research in neuroscience, psychopharmacology, biochemistry, genetics, and physiology to explore the biological bases of mental illness.

Neuropsychological measures are used to diagnose brain dysfunction in many conditions, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), seizures, depression, schizophrenia, dementia, and infections such as HIV.
