clinical neuropsychology

3.10.2017: I bought a new espresso maker when I went back home last weekend and the coffee tastes heavenly. Despite drinking great coffee, I have not been feeling so well because of a cold, no motivation for uni (if anyone has any good advice how to start studying productively when you have no motivation at all - please tell me!) and some circulatory problems (I’m apparently a Victorian lady who passes out frequently). Pictured are yesterday’s morning coffee and my outlines for Clinical Neuropsychology, which I need to continue today in between 4 hours of lectures. Hope you are all doing well, xx Amber

I'm fascinated with the human brain.. what are some possible majors/careers involving that?

So, you like the human brain huh? For your listening pleasure check out Brain Science Podcast.

Generally, to dig deep into the human brain you are going to need a higher level of education, most likely your doctorate. If you plan on going to medical school you could major in a variety of subjects for your undergraduate studies. Check out this article: Choose the Right Undergraduate Major for Medical School.

Hi! I'm a first year in college and I'm thinking of majoring in cognitive neuroscience too! I'm just at a loss for what possible career paths I can do because it's so interdisciplinary.

Hello! That’s so exciting, I love hearing from people who want to study similar things to me!

There’s both academia and practice you can go into, but it just depends on which is more desirable to you.

Here are some fields;

  • Academia/research for literally anything
  • Neuroimaging
  • Clinical psychology
  • Counselling
  • Neuroscience
  • Neuropsychology
  • Social work
  • Behavioural psychology
  • Organisational/Industrial psychology
  • Criminal psychology
  • Abnormal psychology
  • Evolutionary psychology
  • Child and developmental psychology
  • Family psychology
  • Health psychology
  • Relationship counselling
  • Engineering psychology
  • Community or educational psychology
  • Sports psychology
  • Psychiatry (+ MD).                                                                                        
Neuropsychology will definitely have loads of sub-fields, but that’s all I can think of at the moment. I think that having so many possible fields is one of the coolest things about psychology!

If you have any more questions about psych fields, please send me another ask! I hope you have a lovely day, and good luck with your studies!

27.08.2017: Some pictures of my cute little Leuchtturm bullet journal & desk at home. The second year of uni will officially start in some days and because I haven’t really done anything study-related the past few vacation weeks, I’m trying to get my shit together and finish all the organizational uni stuff today. I already enrolled in all my courses for next semester, which include stuff such as Statistics II (ugh) and Clinical neuropsychology (which I’m quite excited about). Hope you all rock your weekend, Amber :)

how hard is psychology im a senior in high school and i want my major to be something about psychology or criminology

Imagine it as a continuum, where business psychology, coaching etc. is a piece of cake. and clinical psychology and neuropsychology is the hardest thing you’ve ever studied.
As for forensic psychology, if you want to be brilliant, you should first get MA in clinical psychology and proceed to PHD in forensic psychology.
personally, I don’t believe in this crap that you can start BA in forensic psychology. It’s not serious. But it’s your choice. Good luck :)
