The brain contains billions of cells and an infinite number of possible connections between individual neurons, allowing the exchange of complex information. The amazing range of connections determines the activity of the brain. Understanding this network of neurons is the main target of neuropsychology. The neuroscience revolution emerged when scientists realized that the only hope for understanding brain functionality is the interdisciplinary approach, a combination of traditional approaches that leads to a new synthesis / perspective.
The main objective of this paper is to promote new acquisitions in the field of neuroscience and special psychopedagogy. The studies in this volume cover issues of current interest. All chapters highlight modern, theoretical or applied perspectives, combining conceptual aspects with practical ones.
The paper manages to bring together the contributions of university teachers, scientific researchers and practitioners from prestigious institutions of clinical practice in our country.
Readers, students, practitioners, have the opportunity to expand their field of knowledge and to use informational structures in the realization of academic projects and, especially, of projects designed to improve the lives of clients.

The brain contains billions of cells and an infinite number of possible connections between individual neurons, allowing the exchange of complex information. The amazing range of connections determines the activity of the brain. Understanding this network of neurons is the main target of neuropsychology.
The neuroscience revolution emerged when scientists realized that the only hope for understanding brain functionality is the interdisciplinary approach, a combination of traditional approaches that leads to a new synthesis / perspective.
Understanding how the brain works has shifted from a reductionist approach, in which various particular aspects of brain structure and functionality have been experimentally analyzed to interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approaches. The study units or levels of analysis in neuroscience in order of complexity are: molecular neuroscience, cellular neuroscience, systems neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience.
Neuropsychology is the study of how the properties of the brain allow behavior to develop. It studies the relationships between brain function and behavior and especially changes in thinking and behavior that relate to the structural or cognitive integrity of the brain. Thus, neuropsychology is a way to study the brain by examining the behavior it produces.
Neuropsychology developed amazingly in the 1970s and 1990s, being the fastest growing subspecialty of psychology. Neuropsychologists conduct studies of brain-behavioral relationships and are involved in creating and developing technologies to participate in the treatment of brain diseases. They are involved in improving the lives of patients, working not only in medical units, but also in universities, research institutions, correction, the armed forces and private practice.
The main objective of this paper is to promote new acquisitions in the field of neuroscience and special psychopedagogy. The studies in this volume cover issues of current interest. All chapters highlight modern, theoretical or applied perspectives, combining conceptual aspects with practical ones. The paper manages to bring together the contributions of university teachers, scientific researchers and practitioners from prestigious institutions of clinical practice in our country.
Readers, students, practitioners, have the opportunity to expand their field of knowledge and to use informational structures in the realization of academic projects and, especially, of projects designed to improve the lives of clients.
