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:
- Dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or memory loss
- Epilepsy and seizure disorders
- Genetic and other medical disorders
- Neurological disorders
- Psychiatric conditions
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
- 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.
Our adult neuropsychology patients
Our adult testing process helps your medical team make an accurate diagnosis and create a specialized, effective treatment plans. These evaluations also can help family members decide on care needs, living arrangements, and more for older adults.
Our pediatric neuropsychology patients
Much of our testing process for children and teens is geared toward developmental milestones and success in school. A neuropsychological evaluation can help us determine if your child has a neurological condition in addition to any mental health issues that may exist.
Expert recommendations in a patient-focused setting
Our recommendations are based on the evidence we gather in detailed evaluations and the latest medical science. We work with experts in a variety of fields as part of a team effort for our patients, including:
