What is BRAIN?
BRAIN (Be Ready for ABPP In Neuropsychology) was started in 2002 by about a dozen friends who felt the best way to tackle the ABPP/ABCN board certification process was to support one another, apply a little friendly peer pressure to complete the process in a timely manner, and divide the work load (e.g., chapter summaries, review of work samples). This group began to accumulate notes to help each other with the process and launched an e-mail study support group which, over time, grew to include hundreds of members.
As the group grew, so did the notes. Study outlines were developed and updated. New topics were covered and notes on old topics were revised, shortened, updated, or corrected. This website represents the collective effort of the many members of the group. We hope that, by posting study materials on this venue, we will help members of our ever-growing study group, as well as anyone else who happens to be pursuing ABPP/ABCN certification, move on to achieve this important distinction.
The BRAIN group is connected by a formal e-mail list-serve. Participating in the BRAIN list-serve is not required to view this site. Links that explain how to join the list-serve, as well as its rules and regulations, are available below.
