Abstract

A neuropsychological assessment aims to determine the impact of a known or suspected brain-related condition on thinking skills (cognition), behavior and mood. This is undertaken by clinical interview and via administration of a set of psychometric scales and tests designed to ascertain current level of function and detect changes, impairments, problems or symptoms experienced by the individual in any aspect of cognition or behavior, or in mood. The purpose may be to assist with neurological diagnosis, to identify, monitor or manage neuropsychological impairments, or to devise rehabilitation management strategies or interventions.
