Carolina Neuroservices offer several comprehensive neuropsychological test batteries to assess, aid in diagnosis, and guide in the treatment of each individual patient. The testing identifies neurocognitive impairment by evaluating attention, memory, visual perceptual abilities, executive functioning, language, intelligence (IQ), motor skills, tactile functioning, and personality. Age ranges for pediatric and adolescent evaluations are 4 - 17 years while adult evaluations are from 18 - 80+ years. If you are interested in the testing, please visit the New Patient Info page and follow the instructions for making an appointment for an initial consultation.
What is Neuropsychology?
As a discipline, neuropsychology studies the relationship between brain function and behavior. Neuropsychologists administer and interpret behavioral tests to understand an individual’s thinking or “cognitive” skills. These tests help determine the existence and extent of brain dysfunction and help guide the use of medications and rehabilitation.
