Over the past few decades, neuropsychology was established as a basic and clinical science through a joint effort by psychologists and physicians. Recent health care politics, however, more and more subsumes clinical neuropsychology in the context of psychological psychotherapy. We consider this recent development to be systematically wrong and substantially inappropriate, and we fear that it will adversely affect patient care.
