The purpose of this paper is to discuss the possibility and necessity of using grey system theory in neuropsychological studies.


The paper employs a logical analysis approach.


There are three characteristics of neuropsychological studies: the particularity of the study subjects; the specialty of the study scheme; and insufficient data from traditional statistical methods. Grey system theory is appropriate for analyzing the data collected in neuropsychological studies.


After several years' significant development, grey system theory has been applied in various subjects successfully. However, the application in psychology and medicine is still a rarity.
