By testing language, executive functions, memory, and behavioral symptoms, a neuropsychological exam may confirm an existing diagnosis, identify the severity of the symptoms, or provide a cognitive baseline for which to compare future evaluations. We commonly see traumatic brain injured patients (TBI), age-related conditions such as Dementia (i.e., due to Alzheimer’s, vascular inefficiencies, Lewy Body Disease, and Parkinson’s disease). We also see individuals with autoimmune diseases, somatoform disorder, chronic pain, epilepsy, and those with atypical presentations. With use of neuropsychological testing, we have helped to clarify the presence of less common diagnoses such as Frontotemporal Dementia, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, and Posterior Cortical Atrophy. Psychological testing also plays a key role in our evaluations, especially when it comes to discerning whether cognitive problems are due to an underlying medical condition, psychiatric problems, situational factors, or motivational concerns.
