Neuropsychological Assessments

Neuropsychologists on the medical staff of Texas Health Dallas provide inpatient and outpatient assessments of cognitive and behavioral functions resulting from central-nervous-system diseasessuch as Alzheimer’s, or acquired cognitive deficits caused by an injury or stroke. Patients who may benefit from a neuropsychological evaluation include those experiencing the following:

  • Memory decline (dementia)
  • Stroke
  • Head injury
  • Brain tumor
  • Seizure disorder
  • Parkinson’s disease

Following a neuropsychological evaluation, recommendations may include:

  • Cognitive rehabilitation
  • Individual and family therapy
  • Support groups

  • Referral for psychiatric medications

A neuropsychological evaluation can provide a better understanding of the situation — for both the patient and the caregiver — of the unique effects of a brain injury or disease on an individual’s cognitive and behavioral functioning.
