Theoretical discussion of applying grey system theory in neuropsychological studies

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.
