INC 2018 - International Neuropsychological Society 2018 Mid-Year Meeting

Czech Republic

Start date: 18 Jul 2018
End date: 20 Jul 2018


The conference theme, “Bridging Science and Humanity,” was inspired by Prague’s location at a crossroads of diverse cultures, languages, and political and economic systems.

The science of clinical neuropsychology, unlike more basic sciences, cannot be separated from language and culture. In fact, language and culture represent key mediators of how neuropsychology is taught and practiced, and many assumptions about neuropsychology that hold true in one part of the world may well not be applicable elsewhere.

Consequently, although advances in our understanding of brain-behavior relationships, pathophysiology of neurological conditions, and behavioral manifestations of brain insults are all necessary for the advancement of neuropsychology as a clinical and scientific discipline, they are not sufficient: Interpreting such advances within concrete human contexts is key.
