NeuropsychiatryNeuropsychiatry is the Specialist medical field with overlapping territories between Psychiatry and Neurology. It is that branch of Medicine in which the workings of the brain and the mind are studied and, when they cause illness, are assessed and treated It incorporates disorders on the margins of psychiatry and neurology and deals with the relationship between a personís behaviour and brain activity. It has been described as the speciality that manages ..."that which can be demonstrated to owe its origins to brain malfunction of clearly identifiable nature..., or disorders that operate to disrupt brain function...and bringing the mind and the brain together..."
Neuropsychiatry is one of the oldest branches of Medicine, and the first Neuropsychiatrist is considered to be Hippocrates, who pointed out that it is from the brain and the brain only that arises all that we are.
