Neurology deals with the disorders of nervous system, psychiatry with mental illness and behavioral conditions, and psychology with human mind and behavior. In the beginning of 20th century, with the dynamic disclosure trends outweighed in psychology, firstly psychiatry is affected by this situation, then, neurology turned into reflexology and moved away from brain. This artificial weathering lasted for almost 70 years, and the usage of imaging techniques did lay the groundwork for these fields to come closer.
Recently neurology continues its approach with behavioral neurology, psychiatry with biological psychiatry and psychology with experimental and cognitive psychology; so, the brain is becoming the common ground and interest of these 3 fields. This development has gained ideal ground in Turkey with NP GROUP.
