Ever since the time of the ancient Egyptians, brain injuries have provided the richest source of data about the relationship of brain to behavior. The discipline of neuropsychology is the study of brain/behavior relationships. Neuropsychologists are interested in helping people with brain injuries, diagnosing their problems and devising therapies for rehabilitation, but they are also interested in brain/behavior relations in their own right, as scientific topics for research.

Many fine neuropsychology are available online. Examples are "A neuropsychology homepage" <> and the home page of the Brain Injury Association of America <>.
