Neuropsychological Assessment

Neuropsychology is the study of BRAIN / BEHAVIOR relationships. A neuropsychological evaluation can be used to determine the extent of functional impairment and personality changes in mild to moderate brain injuries, stroke, epilepsy, and extensive drug and alcohol abuse. The length of a neuropsychological evaluation can typically last 3 to 6 hours since many areas of functioning are thoroughly assessed. A neuropsychological evaluation consists of paper-pencil tests that assess a wide range of cognitive and emotional functions including:
  • Memory and Learning
  • Attention and Concentration
  • Perceptual and Spatial Skills
  • Language Ability
  • Reasoning, Problem-solving, and Judgement
  • Motor Skills
  • Emotion and Personality
Clinical neuropsychologists are asked to answer functional questions, such as:
  • “What can this person still do despite his or her brain pathology?”
  • “What accommodations will he/she need to live/work/function optimally?”
  • “Can he/she go back to work?”
  • “Is the memory loss a static or progressive process?”
Neuropsychological testing assesses these brain-behavior relationships and is available for a variety of problems, including dementia/memory evaluations, head injury, vocational issues, and competency evaluations.
