Neuropsychology is a sub-field of psychology concerned with an individual's cognitive brain function. A neuropsychologic assessment uses standardized tests to assess the patient in areas such as attention, concentration, memory, and problem-solving. Our assessments will also include patient history, qualitative observation and may draw on findings from neuroimaging and other diagnostic medical procedures.
These comprehensive, individualized examinations may aid in diagnosing both developmental disabilities and disorders acquired as an adult (e.g., mild cognitive impairment and dementia), or may focus on evaluating the effects of known brain-related disorders (e.g., stroke, tumor, MS) to aid in continuing treatment planning.
