Obstacles and Aids to Neuroinformatics in Neuropsychology

  • Vinoth Jagaroo

The threshold between neuropsychology and NI has been crossed. Neuropsychology is an established discipline with many long held conventions, and NI is a relatively new, highly innovative practice, the emergence of which is impossible to ignore. As these two fields begin to interact, there are bound to be those forces that are reticent about the prospect of neuropsychology being reinvented by informatics. There are also bound to be those forces that will eagerly endorse the growth of NI in neuropsychology, in recognizing enormous potential in NI. Each of these sets of forces will likely bring strong arguments based on the contexts in which they were shaped.
