Adult Neuropsychology

The Adult Neuropsychology Program helps adult patients and families understand and manage physical, cognitive and emotional problems associated with recovery from illness or injury. Neuropsychology testing evaluates a patient’s cognitive functioning in a wide range of domains such as memory, attention, language, affect and problem-solving skills.
