A neuropsychological assessment is a comprehensive test of a wide range of mental (cognitive and executive) functions of the brain including behavior. Neuropsychologists are the only specialists that are trained to evaluate and measure brain function.
A neuropsychological evaluation includes evaluations and tests to measure how well a person’s brain is working.
