What Is Neuropsychology?

Testing options for adults, children, and teens.

Neuropsychology is the study of how brain function relates to behavior, emotion, and cognition (thinking). Our team evaluates patients of all ages for problems associated with behavioral or medical conditions. In addition to testing and diagnosis, we provide recommendations and education to help patients and families better understand their conditions and related challenges.

Conditions we evaluate

Our neuropsychology team works with patients who have conditions that affect behavior, emotion, and thinking. In adult patients, we see a wide variety of conditions, such as:

Children and teens often come to us for evaluation for difficulties relating to:

  • Neurological and medical conditions, such as spina bifida, hydrocephalus, seizures, and genetic disorders
  • ADHD
  • Autism educational planning
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders, such as intellectual disabilities or language delays
  • Complications from preterm birth or complex pregnancies
  • Learning disabilities

Patients of all ages also see us for complications from head injuries and concussions. Through testing, we can assess the extent of the injury and make treatment recommendations for getting patients back to work, school, and sports safely.
