NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL

EVALUATION

Neuropsychology involves the understanding of relationships between the brain and human behaviors. A neuropsychological evaluation is a formal assessment of the way our brain works. The goal of the evaluation is to identify one’s cognitive strengths, weaknesses, and deficits. It also characterizes one’s cognitive, behavioral, and emotional changes that are associated with a congenital, neurodevelopmental, or neurodegenerative condition, as well as the aftermath of a significant neurological event (e.g. stroke, traumatic brain injury, resection of brain tumor, etc.) 

What is neuropsychological evaluation?

A neuropsychological evaluation usually begins with a clinical interview. During this meeting, the clinician obtains the necessary background information about the patient, which will help paint a clear picture of the patient’s presenting complaints. After the interview, the patient will sit through a series of paper and pencil tests. Depending on the referral question and the complexity of the problem, testing may take anywhere between 4-8 hours. After testing is completed, the patient will receive feedback on their testing results, and receive recommendations for treatment, if indicated. The patient will receive a copy of the report at the conclusion of the evaluation.
