Brain-Behavior Relationship

Neuropsychology is the study of the relationship between the brain and behaviors. It also includes the study of the structures and functions of the brain. Simply stated, the brain affects everything we do including thinking, feeling, and acting through communication between areas of the brain and coordination of functions. These functions include attention, concentration, learning, memory, thinking, and reasoning ability.

Robert F. Burgess, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist, trained neuropsychologist, and qualified medical examiner. He evaluates and treats clients with acquired brain injuries and diseases. These often include:

  1. Traumatic Brain Injuries
  2. Strokes
  3. Electric Shock Trauma
  4. Toxic Chemical Exposure
  5. Effect of Medication and Drugs on the Brain
  6. Dementia

Dr. Burgess also evaluates and treats developmental disorders that include ADD/ADHD and the autistic spectrum disorders. In addition, he performs Workers' Compensation evaluations and disability evaluations for clients.

In neuropsychological evaluations, Dr. Burgess addresses the interplay between perception, cognition, emotions, and behaviors. Clients are often evaluated in the following domains:

  1. Perception
  2. Attention/Concentration
  3. Learning
  4. Memory
  5. Intellectual and Emotional Functioning
  6. Problem-Solving
  7. Logical Thinking and Reasoning Ability

From these assessments and evaluation, treatment plans are formed that guide treatment often including neurofeedback training and psychotherapy. In turn, the treatment helps clients attain better mental and emotional functioning in their lives.  Prospective clients can contact Dr. Burgess through a voicemail or through his email at rfburgessphd@aol.com.
