Brain Health Center - Neuropsychological Testing
Neuropsychology is a specialty that focuses on the relationship between the health of the brain and thinking/behavior. Neuropsychologists often conduct testing with patients in order to determine what kind of thinking problems are present and assist with diagnosis. They can also provide recommendations for dealing with cognitive defects.
A common recommendation made by neuropsychologists is for cognitive rehabilitation. The term "cognitive" refers to all kinds of thinking, including language, memory and visual-spatial skills.
Cognitive rehabilitation specialists help patients to either re-learn a lost skill or learn skills to compensate for the problem. This kind of treatment is often offered in a group format.
