Neuropsychology is a specialty branch of psychology focusing on relationships between the brain and behavior. A clinical neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related to the brain.
Our clinical neuropsychologist will evaluate you with objective, standardized tests of memory and cognitive (thinking) skills. The evaluation usually consists of an interview and testing.
Neuropsychological evaluations are requested specifically to help your doctors and other professionals understand how 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.
