There are Many Benefits to Neuropsychological Evaluations

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Orlando Neuropsychological Evaluations are important because they can determine whether thinking skills, mood, or personality have been changed or affected by a neurological abnormality. The evaluation includes the establishment of a baseline by which changes in skills and personality can be compared over time, for purposes of monitoring the condition and deciding on appropriate treatments or courses of action. Neuropsychological evaluations also help the patient and their family make important decisions pertaining to personal responsibilities, work, and their lifestyle. Family members can be educated on how the disorder or abnormality affects the patient’s functioning, allowing them to understand and aid the patient more effectively. These evaluations also allow the patient’s supervising doctor access to information that can help them decide on medication or treatment methods. This may prevent unwanted side effects, and improved cognition. Neuropsychological evaluations are required for any person who is contemplating deep brain stimulation as a method of treatment, in order to identify whether such a treatment would be appropriate. These valuations can also allow doctors to make more specific diagnoses, especially when the neural dysfunction does not outwardly seem to have one specific, categorical cause. The brain does not tend to have clear-cut, distinct boundaries for functioning and cognition; if an injury or abnormality occurs within the brain, a plethora of disorders can result. With neuropsychological evaluations, neuropsychologists are given a much clearer picture of how the damaged areas are affecting the patient.
