What are our goals with neuropsychological evaluation and consultation services?
A Neuropsychologist studies brain-behavior interactions, the health of the individual’s brain, and the problems that brain dysfunction can cause, through the process of neuropsychological evaluation. Dr. Demarest works with people of all ages; individuals with brain or spinal cord conditions, and other central nervous system dysfunction, including traumatic and acquired brain injury, cerebrovascular accident (stroke), spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s and other types of dementias, progressive neuromuscular conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, and related disorders.
Clinical neuropsychological evaluation provides a comprehensive and detailed description of the unique behavioral, cognitive, and psychological consequences of brain or other central nervous system trauma or condition. An assessment of this type documents functional strengths and weaknesses so that rehabilitation can tap resources to help the individual adjust to or compensate for disabilities. Our neuropsychologist uses scientific techniques to infer premorbid (preexisting) characteristics of the individual and to provide an index of the extent and type of changes brought about by the injury.
