Neuropsychology

The neuropsychology team provides cognitive and psychological assessment of patients who have neurological illnesses or suffered traumatic injuries that may impact the brain. Our neuropsychologists work closely with the medical professionals of Memorial Neuroscience Institute to help patients and their families deal with the possible intellectual and emotional impact of neurological illness or injury.
