Neuropsychology is a medical specialty that focuses on how the brain works, which is evaluated by testing memory and thinking skills.This testing - or neuropsychological assessment - is an important tool in diagnosing and treating many neurological disorders. The test data is combined with other information to identify and treat various conditions.
Neuropsychological assessment is particularly helpful in providing care for patients with:
- memory problems
- neurodegenerative disorders (such as muscular dystrophy or Parkinson’s)
- head injury
- developmental disorders
- and any neurological, medical or psychiatric condition that has an impact on thinking skills.
All Saints offers pediatric and adult neuropsychology specialists.
