Why Have I Been Referred?

Neuropsychological evaluations are requested specifically to help your doctors and other professionals understand how the different areas and systems of the brain are working.

Testing is usually recommended when there are symptoms or complaints involving memory or thinking. This may be signaled by a change in concentration, organization, reasoning, memory, language, perception, coordination, or personality.

The change may be due to any of a number of medical, neurological, psychological, or genetic causes.

Testing will be helpful in understanding your specific situation.
