Neuropsychology is the study of the brain and its role in behavior. A neuropsychologist is a doctor who examines the brain's functions like memory and language to guide treatment for brain conditions. This helps shape the best treatment with the least risk.

About neuropsychology

Neuropsychology is a subspecialty of clinical psychology and focuses on the relationship between the brain and behavior. Our neuropsychologists and expert staff specialize in testing, evaluating and treating people with brain injury or disease. We measure and determine the effects of known or suspected issues with memory, attention and problem-solving.

Our experts, which include doctors who are board-certified in neuropsychology, determine the best diagnoses and treatments for people with brain disorders while preserving brain function. The neuropsychologist also can assess whether cognitive concerns are related to normal aging or to a medical condition.

Our specialty-trained providers use advanced technologies to study brain patterns to determine how surgeries might affect memory, attention span or language skills. They also map language, vision and motor centers to support neurosurgeons in avoiding these areas.

We offer a variety of appointment types. Learn more or call 913-588-1227 to schedule now.
