A neuropsychological assessment is useful in personal injury, competency, criminal, and disability cases.
A neuropsychologist assesses cognitive function from a quantifiable standpoint with the goal of providing objective information regarding any relationship between aspects of behavioral functioning (such as memory) and injury (such as concussion or brain injury).
The assessment is conducted through scientifically valididated standardized tests. The results of a neuropsychological evaluation are reported by domain which provides a meaningful way to address cognitive function.
Most neuropsychological evaluations include assessment of the following cognitive domains:
memory, intellectual ability, attention, concentration, information processing abilities, executive functions, and skill level.
