Clinical Neuropsychology is a specialty profession of psychology that systematically focuses on human brain functioning and provides valuable clinical information regarding known or suspected problems with the brain. Neuropsychological evaluation is often requested for persons with brain injury, stroke, infectious CNS disease, dementia, memory concerns, seizures, brain tumors, movement disorders, and for any other conditions that may affect the brain. Neuropsychological evaluations can be useful in accurate diagnosis, predicting prognosis, documenting recovery, providing information for medical boards, neurobehavioral management, cognitive rehabilitation, for return to work or return to duty questions, and in formulating treatment plans. Services are available to both inpatient and outpatient Department of Defense and Veteran's Affairs beneficiaries. Services are available for the full age span of adulthood. Neuropsychology is allied with all medical services including Family Practice, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Neurosurgery as part of a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment.
