Neuropsychological evaluations assist in:

  1. determining the extent of memory or cognitive deficits,
  2. organic vs. emotional symptomatology,
  3. deficits secondary to injury versus premorbid functioning,
  4. identification of disease process,
  5. expected outcome,
  6. as well as validity measures. 

The brain is mapped according to function.  Each function can then be mapped to specific regions of the brain.  As part of the comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation, we make:

  1. treatment recommendations,
  2. offer neurocognitive therapy and psychotherapy,
  3. participate in the Impairment Rating and
  4. in determining when maximum medical improvement has been achieved.
