Psychology Q & A

What is psychology?

Psychology is a health care specialty focused on the mind and behavior. The psychologists at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC evaluate your brain function and how it affects your behavior. This information provides clues to your physical and mental health and how it affects you socially and emotionally.

The psychology team at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC are neuropsychology specialists who have experience managing many conditions that affect brain health and function, including brain injuries, strokes, and chronic pain. However, the team specializes in the management of learning and behavioral disorders.

What are learning and behavioral disorders?

Learning and behavioral disorders are conditions that affect how the brain works. They’re not simply a person acting out, but a medical condition of the brain.

Learning disorders

Also referred to as learning disabilities, a learning disorder is a neurologically based processing disorder, which means the brain processes information differently than normal. This may affect how you learn.

Common types of learning disorders include:

  • Auditory processing disorder
  • Sensory disorder
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia

Living with a learning disorder requires special medical and psychological care.

Behavioral disorders

Like learning disorders, behavioral disorders are also caused by dysfunctions in the brain that affect normal processing. Types of behavioral disorders include:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Oppositional defiant disorder
  • Conduct disorder

Inattention and impulsivity are common symptoms of a behavioral disorder.

If you or a loved one is having a difficult time managing their learning or behavioral disorder, the psychology team at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC can help.
