Neuropsychological assessments are used to determine if there is any neurological impairment and to the extent of such an impairment to a particular skill.
The neuropsychological tests evaluate cognitive functions typically include orientation, new-learning/memory, intelligence, language, visuoperception, and executive function. These assessments help to diagnose neurological disorders such as Alzheimer and Dementia. The test results are also indicative of frontal lobe damage or brain damage/ injury, neurocognitive deficits and executive functioning skills impairment.
The results from these assessments are used to devise a care and management plan as well as identify need for further specific neurological assessments. The early signs of Alzheimer and dementia can be detected by these tests.
Please contact your GP or book an appointment with one of your medical staff to see if you would benefit from these tests.
