Testing looks for impairment of the brain and its specific components or structures. It can also measure cognitive functioning.
Neuropsychology testing gets information beyond that provided by CT, MRI, and PET scans. These tests can identify parts of the brain that look abnormal, but neuropsychological testing demonstrates how these abnormal areas are actually functioning.
The array of tests provided at The Neurology Institute range from brief assessments to lengthy evaluations. Your neurologist gathers any relevant medical or accident history and provides a neuropsychological examination.
A thorough neuropsychological evaluation may also include interviews with your family and friends.
You’ll undergo standardized tests that include oral questions, pencil and paper, computers, and physical tests that involve blocks or puzzles.
Your testing seeks to acquire information about your attention, language, memory, academic skills, reasoning, and problem solving. Testing sometimes addresses mood, behavior, and personality.
