We provide comprehensive evaluations on an outpatient basis for adults who have concerns regarding their memory, attention, and other cognitive abilities.
At the Ohio State Neuropsychology Clinic, we perform comprehensive evaluations for adults with concerns about their thinking abilities (i.e., cognition). Referral questions often relate to specific conditions that can be associated with changes in cognition, such as Alzheimer's disease, brain tumors, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury and others. We also evaluate candidates prior to brain surgery and organ transplant surgery.The focus of these evaluations is to characterize individuals' strengths and weaknesses and to offer treatment recommendations to improve functioning and quality of life.
What is a neuropsychological evaluation?
Neuropsychological evaluations can be more sensitive than neurologic examination and neuroimaging in identifying underlying cognitive limitations.
These evaluations include:
- Objective measurement of cognition and mood/personality
- Clinical interviews of the patient and anyone accompanying him/her to the appointment for additional information
- Review of available medical history and other pertinent information
