Abstract

Purpose

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

Design/methodology/approach

The paper employs a logical analysis approach.

Findings

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.

Originality/value

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.
