NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT involves objective, standardized, paper and pencil testing of various cognitive abilities including overall intelligence, attention, mental speed, language, visual perceptual/spatial skills, motor dexterity, problem-solving skills, learning and memory, and academic achievement, as well as measurement of psychological symptoms. Many cognitive abilities are associated with specific brain areas, and discrete patterns of cognitive deficit can indicate which areas of the brain may indicate or show areas of concern or impairment.
NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS are often requested specifically to help your doctors and other professionals understand how the different areas and systems of the brain are working. Testing is usually recommended when there are symptoms or complaints involving memory or thinking. This may be signaled by a change in concentration, organization, reasoning, memory, language, perception, coordination, or personality. The change may be due to any number of medical, neurological, psychological, or genetic causes. Testing will be helpful in understanding your specific situation.
