Sports Neuropsychology uses the science and understanding of brain-behavior relationships to assess and treat sports-related brain injuries. It combines the focus of Sports Psychology, the performance of an athlete or team, and Neuropsychology, understanding the brain and how it functions.

What is a Sports Neuropsychologist?
A sports neuropsychologist focuses on ideal brain/body interaction. So, if the athlete gets a concussion, a sports neuropsychologist has the training to help rehab the brain. On the other hand, if the brain is healthy, it can help optimize brain/body performance through Peak Performance Training. A sports neuropsychologist can help make you a better coach, trainer, or overall team.
