Why See A Neuropsychologist

Unlike brain imaging, which show pictures of brain structures, neuropsychological assessments provide information about how an individual’s brain perceives, processes, and effects one’s overall functioning in “real world” situations.

Neuropsychologists have extensive understanding and training in how various brain structures, with their respective pathways, are related and contribute to a condition or behavior.

Neuropsychological evaluation can be useful for diagnosis, for determining how a known condition is affecting a person’s functioning, and for monitoring the course of a condition over time.
