Pg 56 of the Marine codex states that the psychic hood can only be used after an enemy has passed a psychic test. So things like Synapse & Warlock powers that don't require a test can't be nullified by the Psychic hood.

It's kind of one of those slightly odd rules because technically both Warlock and Hive Mind powers are psychic powers. However, in reference to the hood the important part of the rule is the part about taking the test after the enemy has made passed the psychic test. Since no role is made for powers like Conceal and Synapse you can't use the hood to try and negate them.

Tzeentch sorcs did have to test for their pyschic powers, they just automatically passed them. There is a distinct difference between powers that do not require a test, and those which do require one, but the user simply automatically passes that test. Once a power is announced, irregardless of whether any dice are thrown or not, if the codex says they must pass a test (even if its automatically passed) to use the power, the hood can block it.

As Jeff said, synapse is technically a power, but in reality its more of a constant ability. The fact that they never test for it means it cannot be passed or failed, and therefore you cannot use a hood on it. However there are ways to screw with synapse.... (Psych-out anyone?)
