Neuropsychology is a very specific area of medical science that deals with the brain. It focuses on the structure, the function and any possible problems that could occur in the brain. Neuropsychology is a part of human biology that looks into the structure of the brain, how it is made up, what it is made of and the way in which it works. This is another very complicated branch of science, because the brain is such a delicate and intricate organ; so it is hard to examine it while working, without the risk of causing severe damage to it. It is only in recent years that we had been able to operate on the brain because we have the knowledge and equipment to do it safely. There are lots of stories about brain operations that have resulted in people being paralyzed or not having skills which they did have before the operation, although thankfully these are mainly in the distant past now. In some operations, surgery has been done while the patient was awake, such as the famous operation where a man was asked to play the banjo continuously throughout the process so that the surgeons knew they were not doing any damage to the nervous system.
