Know Your Neuropsychologist

A psychologist with expertise in identifying the link between the brain and behaviour is known as a neuropsychologist. Behavioural and cognitive function can be affected by the disorders of the nervous system as well as the brain.

A neuropsychologist consultation is a means used to examine how the several parts of the brain link to behaviour and thought.

Psychologists with a doctorate in neuropsychology are known as neuropsychologists. They frequently operate in clinical or laboratory environments.

The effects of a brain disorder or a brain injury on daily life are examined by neuropsychologists. These behavioural characteristics such as physical, emotional, social, and cognitive parameters may be influenced by a brain injury.

Even though some neuropsychologists favour teaching or research, others like interacting with patients directly. To determine which area of the brain is affected, clinical neuropsychologists examine their patients' brain ability. They then offer diagnoses and suggest a course of action.

Clinical neuropsychologists determine the extent of neurological disease and the rate at which a problem is developing.

What does a neuropsychologist?

People who suffer from different kinds of problems related to nervous system are examined and treated by neuropsychologists. They cooperate closely with doctors, such as neurologists.

Diseases, traumas, and other abnormalities of the nervous system as well as the brain can influence how a person feels, thinks, and interacts with others.

During a neuropsychologist consultation a neuropsychologist can assist in making a diagnosis if other medical professionals are unable to identify the causes of a symptom. Even if a diagnosis has been known, an evaluation can be beneficial.

Some examples of the diseases a neuropsychologist examines and treats include the following:

A stroke can severely or gradually change how someone behaves, thinks, remembers things, and uses other brain functions. To help evaluate the level of stroke impairment, neuropsychologists may perform an assessment.

Memory, personality, and thinking skills can be affected by Alzheimer's disease as well as some other forms of dementia.

A neuropsychologist can assist in identifying the specific kind of learning disability an individual has and helps in creating a treatment strategy for such individuals.

Parkinson's disease is a chronic condition that can lead to several neurological issues.

Brain damage caused by trauma.

Who needs a neuropsychologist consultation?

If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention and request an appointment for a neuropsychological evaluation.

  • Repeatedly misplace things
  • Having trouble communicating, putting up with words, or understanding what others are saying
  • Repeating a question frequently and experiencing variations in short-term memory
  • Being unable to identify familiar faces
  • A problem with managing or controlling expenses or finances
  • Unexpected personality changes, enhanced anxiety or sadness, or the emergence of hallucinations or delusions

What happens during a neuropsychologist consultation?

During a consultation, the neuropsychologist will speak with you to learn about any issues you and your family may have regarding your mental health. Additionally, your medical and psychiatric history will be reviewed.

The tests you take will be decided by your neuropsychologist. Under the direction of the neuropsychologist, a trained technician known as a psychometrist administers and scores the examinations. Writing, sketching, completing puzzles or riddles, and responding to the content displayed on a computer are some of the common test activities.

Depending on how severe the symptoms are, a neuropsychological examination may last from 2 to 8 hours. Additionally, several individuals might require extra test time.  It is possible to take tests on different days if needed.

Questions about your mood and psychiatric conditions will be given to you. Children evaluated for neuropsychological evaluations frequently have their parents fill out questions concerning their behaviour.

The neuropsychologist then summarises the data into a report that contains suggestions for improved cognition (such as memory and attention).

What happens after a neuropsychologist consultation?

Your neuropsychologist will grade the exams you take. You might receive test results right away. A thorough report will be written by your neuropsychologist for your concerned doctor. You can talk to the neuropsychologist or the physician who referred you to the neuropsychologist about your findings.

Your tests will provide your doctor with precise data about your state of health. In your first neuropsychological evaluation, the test results can create a basis for comparison for your future symptoms and issues. Your doctor will then be able to determine if your condition gets better or gets worse. The data could also be used by your doctor to support a current diagnosis or to propose an alternative one.

Your care team's decision regarding the services or treatment you potentially require will be based on the results of your examination.

Takeaway points

If you choose to visit a neuropsychologist as soon as you begin to notice symptoms that could affect your ability to speak, think, or remember, you can get early treatment to prevent the disease from periodically getting worse.
