The brain is the center of the body’s nervous system. It’s a complex organ that controls our thoughts, language, emotions and behaviors. Understanding the brain and how it functions is no small task, which is why we developed the clinical neuropsychology practice at Mount Carmel West.
Clinical neuropsychology is a medical specialty that focuses on brain function. A clinical neuropsychologist is a licensed doctoral level psychologist with expertise in brain structures and systems and how our behaviors and skills relate to them. In our clinical neuropsychology practice, our experienced neuropsychologists evaluate brain function by objectively testing patients’ memory and thinking skills. The evaluation can lead to diagnoses and treatment recommendations, including neurocognitive rehabilitation, behavior management or recommendations for further medical care.
