Neuropsychological Testing

The human brain is a delicate organ. Aging, injury, and even illness can cause it damage, and while the brain has a remarkable ability to adapt and heal, there are occasionally issues that arise that may require neuropsychological testing in order to determine if the brain is experiencing any problems with things like:

  • Memory.
  • Cognitive function.
  • Emotional control and regulation.
  • Word-finding difficulty, short-term memory problems.
  • Traumatic brain injury and more.

Neuropsychological Testing

They are based on scientifically researched strategies for evaluating psychological health as it relates to the brain. Examples of these tests include:

  • Memory Testing – Testing short and long term memory.
  • Attention Testing – Test the length of time the individual can focus on a task.
  • Language Testing – Testing a person’s ability to use words, synonyms, speak, etc.
  • Organizational Testing – Test a person’s ability to organize.
  • Logic Testing – Test a person’s ability to solve problems.

These are brief overviews about what the tests are like. Some of them take place in front of a computer and are evaluated separately. Others are administered ‘face-to-face,’ or in person. Choice of each test depends on what is being evaluated. Neuropsychological Testing is available in my Naples and Ft. Myers, FL offices and is available in both Spanish and English.
