SOLOVIEVA, Yulia; ROJAS, Luis Quintanar; AKHUTINA, Tatiana  and  HAZIN, Izabel. Historical-Cultural Neuropsychology: a systemic and integral approach of psychological functions and their cerebral bases. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.1, pp. 65-75. ISSN 1413-294X.

This article analyzes the theoretical foundations of neuropsychology based on the ideas of L.S. Vygotsky and A. R. Luria, with an emphasis on the principle of systemic organization of psychological processes, their ontogenetic development and systemic representation in the central nervous system. The article describes the need for a comprehensive study of neuropsychology, considering its relationship with more global psychological concepts developed by representatives of the historical-cultural concept of mental functions and the theory of activity. This paper considers the need to include neuropsychology in the context of historical-cultural studies and the theory of activity. Finally, it is argued that one of the essential features of historical-cultural neuropsychology is the concept of systemic, dynamic and hierarchical representation of cultural psychological processes.

Keywords : neuropsychology; Vygotsky; Luria; Historical-Cultural.
