Neuropsychology Services

 Back to Services

Neuropsychology is a specialty area of psychology that focuses on thinking, learning, and behavior, and its relationship to the brain. Neuropsychologists often work closely with neurologists and other health care providers. Together, they identify how a neurological illness or injury may affect function in your day-to-day life.

Neuropsychology Testing

Neuropsychologists use standardized tests to examine different aspects of thinking, such as:

  • Attention
  • Behavior
  • Executive skills
  • Language
  • Memory
  • Processing speed

The tests help the team better understand your cognitive strengths and weaknesses. With this information, our neuropsychologists can also identify brain structures or systems that may not work as efficiently as possible. We can then make recommendations for treatments/supports that can help improve your life.
