Conditions: Neurocognitive Assessments and Neuropsychology

In general, the aim of neuropsychological assessment is to determine one’s cognitive, behavioural, emotional, and functional status.

The goal of such specialist assessment is to identify specific higher functions (such as memory, attention, language, or speech) that may have been compromised. It is key to diagnose problems as early as possible and neuropsychological assessment can detect cognitive problems and decline at a very early stage. Once such difficulties and areas of needs have been identified, the specialist treatment (for example, via cognitive therapy or in some cases neurorehabilitation) can be individualised and selected.

Significant cognitive impairments or cognitive disorders (such as dementia, amnesia, and delirium) that are more advanced and severe, are likely to inquire input form specialist clinics.
