Neuropsychological Reports

What is Neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology is the science that studies how our behaviour and our brain are related. Neuropsychology involves the evaluation of brain functions, behaviour, and social-emotional functioning. At Neuroscenter our professionals work directly with the patients. Depending on whether the patient is a child, an adult or an elderly person, our professional clinicians will also talk to parents, children, husband / wife, therapist, teachers or other professionals and doctors. Many questions are asked and different types of problems are solved. Neuropsychological evaluations usually include tests that measure:

  • Intelligence (IQ)
  • Problem solving
  • Planning and organization
  • Attention and memory
  • Processing speed
  • Language
  • Academic skills
  • Visual perception
  • Control of hand movements
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Aggressiveness and impulsive behavior
  • Social skills
  • AVD
The neuropsychologist will also review medical and school records, etc.. to help understand test results in relation to daily life.

Why does a neuropsychological evaluation differ from other evaluations that are not within Neuropsychology?

Although some of the same tests are often used, neuropsychology focuses on understanding why a child, adult, or elderly person is having problems at school or at home, at work, etc. This is done not only by examining academic skills, but also by examining all thought skills such as memory, attention and problem solving, ADL skills, activities of daily life, etc. Explaining your strengths and weaknesses helps you better focus on school plans, medical treatment, difficulties at home or at work, etc., and makes it easier to understand potential areas of difficulty in the future. Neuropsychologists are clinically trained, so they are able to make right emotional diagnoses such as depression and anxiety.

This way we start a series of activities aimed at increasing stimulation and at trying to compensate for deficits in cognitive areas in children, adults, and older people at risk of atypical development, impairment or disorders. This areas include:

  • Memory
  • Language
  • Psychomotor skills
  • Attention
  • Viso-perception
  • Impulsiveness
  • Hyperactivity
  • Reasoning
  • Laterality
  • Fine motricity
  • Gross motricity
The most frequent disorders encountered by a neuropsychologist are:
  • Learning disorders
  • Pervasive developmental disorders
  • Attention and / or hyperactivity disorders (ADHD)
  • Dyslexia
  • Epilepsy
  • Giftedness
  • Language delay
  • Dementia
  • Head injuries
  • Neurodegenerative diseases
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Parkinson
  • Depression
  • Social skills
  • Multiple sclerosis
