Neuropsychology is a subspecialty within psychology focused on brain-behavior relationships.   Depending on the referral question, we provide screening or comprehensive, standardized assessments of functioning in relation to specific neurological disorders and diseases.  This process covers memory, language, visual-spatial perception, executive functioning, and emotions/personality.  The evaluations provide information regarding the individual’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, emotional functioning, address patient and family education and recommendations for rehabilitation, disability concerns, and work/school accommodations.  We provide out-patient neuropsychological services for patients with diagnosed neurological disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, MS, brain tumor, and movement disorders.  We work with a wide variety of Penn neurologists and neurosurgeons, community neurologists who have a formal association with Penn Neurology, primary care providers, the Memory Disorders Program, heart and lung transplant programs, Cardiology, Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, Abramson Cancer Center, and Student Health Services.
