What happens during a Neuropsychological Evaluation?

The evaluation involves clinical interviews with the patient and a family member (when possible) to understand the patientís history and to understand how cognitive and emotional changes have affected his or her life. The interview takes approximately an hour. The patient then completes neuropsychological testing. This is a non-invasive process involving primarily pencil-and-paper tests that are completed while seated at a table. The testing is performed by a neuropsychologist and a specialty trained psychometrician. The total time of the evaluation depends on the referral question; the testing is usually completed in one visit and the time for the evaluation usually ranges from 4-7 hours.
