Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that is concerned with how the brain and the rest of the nervous system influence a person's cognition and behaviors.
A neuropsychological assessment is an objective means of quantifying and characterising the cognitive, emotional and behavioural changes that can occur as a result of brain injury or illness. A diagnostic neurospychological assessment involves detailed testing of cognitive functions, including memory, language and attention. The assessment can provide important diagnostic information, as well as information about areas of cognitive strength and weakness, which can help the patient and their family to understand any changes in brain function. We also offer neuropsychological treatment which include strategies to help manage cognitive problems.
