What is Neuropsychiatry

Neuropsychiatry is an integrative field which aims to bridge the gap between neurology and psychiatry. Often Neurological conditions have psychological, behavioural or psychiatric manifestations that affect the underlying neurological condition. This often remains undetected and causes significant distress to patients and burden on carers. Vice versa an underlying psychological or psychiatric condition may present with neurological symptoms which may be mislabelled and mistreated.

It is also concerns itself often with the conditions which either fall between the two disciplines and it is hard to decide whether the condition is neurological or psychiatric. Some times neurological and psychiatric conditions may just co-exist but pose significant diagnostic and management dilemma.
