Neuropsychology focuses on thinking, learning and behavior and how it relates to the brain. With evaluations and tests, neuropsychologists can figure out the strength of your memory and thinking skills.
For people who have or may have epilepsy, neuropsychologists use standardized paper-and-pencil tests to determine memory, cognition and emotional function. The results can help to create an epilepsy diagnosis or treatment plan.
You may receive a referral to a neuropsychologist if you notice issues with:
- Word finding
- Expressing yourself
- Finishing projects
- Controlling behavior
