Neuropsychology studies the connection between brain dysfunction and human behavior. Clinical neuropsychology refers to how we evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate people who demonstrate the symptoms of neurological pathology.
Neuropsychological evaluations are comprehensive assessments of the behavioral manifestations of brain dysfunction. Patients receiving such evaluations have documented or suspected neurological disorders which may impact on behaviors controlled by the brain (e.g., traumatic brain injury, vascular disorders such as stroke, neoplastic diseases such as brain tumors, progressive diseases such as Alzheimer’s seizure disorders, encephalopathies from infectious or immune diseases such as Lymes Disease of Multiple Sclerosis, congenital or developmental neurological disorders in childhood, to name but a few).
The reasons for referral for neuropsychological evaluation include diagnosis (establishing the presence of behavioral disruptions or brain functions with estimation of etiology and prognosis), treatment planning (assessing the breadth of neurobehavioral deficits and recommending interventions for their remediation), and documenting change over time.
