In brief: Type of training

Both psychiatrist and neuropsychiatrists (behavioral neurologists) both start with medical school.
Psychiatrists focus on psychiatric disorders, most of which have no identified brain cause; neuropsychiatrists get additional training in neurology and focus on disorders that may have a defined brain problem such as a stroke that is causing or contributing the behavioral difficulties.
