This presentation will describe a specific complementary integrative approach to clinical assessment and treatment of behavioral deficits. The paradigm described focuses on the treatment of patients with behavioral and cognitive difficulties within a multidisciplinary clinical setting using patient assessments guided by brain function and how it drives behavior. The proposed "Brain to Behavior Approach" is person-centered and uses the medical model to give clinicians objective and subjective assessment tools that focus on key brain processes and how they relate to a patient's clinical features. Cases studies illustrate utility of this approach in the light of neuroscientific data..
