Clinical Activities

The general neuropsychological orientation of the Neuropsychology Assessment Program is one of hypothesis testing. We employ a wide range of tests and neurobehavioral approaches to address specific referral questions or problems.

There is a strong emphasis on complying with consult requests quickly and efficiently by avoiding unnecessarily long examinations.

Our program uses published, brief, and repeatable tests to provide cost-effective care. Our program is capable of assessing a diverse sample of patients beginning at age five, with no upper age limit.

We provide neuropsychological evaluations to patients with the following diagnoses:

  • Traumatic brain injury (mild, moderate, and severe)
  • Cerebrovascular disease (e.g., stroke, aneurysm rupture)
  • Dementia (e.g., Alzheimer's disease, frontal-temporal dementia, dementia with diffuse Lewy bodies)
  • Demyelinating disease (e.g., multiple sclerosis), brain tumors, movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson's disease)
  • Certain developmental disorders (e.g., cerebral palsy)
  • Infectious diseases (e.g., HIV, meningitis)
  • Toxic encephalopathies
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Brain tumors
  • We also provide neuropsychological assessment to patients with many other diagnoses besides those listed above.

Diagnostic evaluations not handled by the Neuropsychology Assessment Program

  • Our program does not provide assessment for the sole purpose of identifying (Attention Deficit Disorder), since our psychiatry department has a specialized program for this diagnosis
  • Our program does not provide assessments for Autism. We refer such patients to the (Developmental Evaluation Center) for an evaluation.
