Job Description for Neuropsychologist

A neuropsychologist is a psychologist specializing in the physical structure of the brain and how behaviors, mental abilities, and emotions relate to the brain and its systems. They are generally called upon to evaluate brain function when brain injury is obvious (as in physical trauma) or impairment is suspected due to aging, illness, or as a result of treatment. Patients' current faculty is evaluated through a series of tests involving such functions as memory, recognition, following directions, simple math, language, emotion, and other physical and mental attributes. A patient being evaluated by a neuropsychologist typically spends six to eight hours in initial evaluation, and subsequent examinations may be deemed necessary to evaluate progress or decline. The neuropsychologist also provides possible treatment options to specialists, therapists, and other relevant professionals.

Pay by Experience Level for Neuropsychologist

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Neuropsychologists — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. The average inexperienced worker earns $82K, and someone who has worked for five to 10 years can expect a bigger median salary of $92K. Six-figure salaries surface after one to two decades on the job — experienced professionals in this group reap a six-figure median of $110K. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $119K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
