Abstract

Over the past year, I have worked as an Emergency Room Scribe. One of the most striking peculiarities I have noticed is that when the emergency room grows busier, the number of admittances rises as well. While it seemed to be a coincidence at first, after a review of the literature I have learned that it is a well-known phenomenon. Understanding physicians' decision-making involves aspects of medicine, neuroscience, and psychology, as well as an extensive understanding of how stress impacts the brain.

The Role of Cognitive Neuropsychology in Emergency Medicine

Over the past year, I have worked as an Emergency Room Scribe. One of the most striking peculiarities I have noticed is that when the emergency room grows busier, the number of admittances rises as well. While it seemed to be a coincidence at first, after a review of the literature I have learned that it is a well-known phenomenon. Understanding physicians' decision-making involves aspects of medicine, neuroscience, and psychology, as well as an extensive understanding of how stress impacts the brain.
