Neuropsychological Testing

Neuropsychology looks at how the health of a person’s brain affects his or her thinking skills and behavior.  Neuropsychological tests are specifically designed tasks used to measure a psychological function known to be linked to a particular brain structure or pathway. They usually involve the systematic administration of clearly defined procedures in a formal environment. Neuropsychological tests are typically administered to a single person, working with an examiner in a quiet office environment, free from distractions. Neuropsychological tests are a core component of the process of conducting a neuropsychological assessment. Our practice conducts comprehensive clinical neuropsychological assessments for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Our testing program assesses a variety of cognitive functions. Testing can be helpful in approaching an array of difficulties, including:

Attention issues
