Abstract: Neuropsychological testing is a relatively new field in the area of clinical neuroscience. It has proven to be an effective and essential aid in the diagnostic process of brain-injured patients, especially in lesions of the cerebral cortex. More advanced countries have incorporated neuropsychological assessments in their standard neurological examinations of the brain damaged. Clinical neuropsychology is only beginning to be used in Singapore. Research using neuropsychological methods have also shown to be useful in providing a greater understanding of the brain-behaviour relationship in humans. Problems confronting the use of neuropsychological testing in Singapore are identified and the possible solutions discussed.
