Neuropsychological Assessment in Psychology

  1. 1. Neuropsychological Assessment Prepared by Ali
  2. 2. overview • Introduction to neuropsychological testing • Complications & problems • History of neuropsychological testing • Example 1: Bender Visual-Gestalt Test • Example 2: The Wisconsin Card Sort Test • Example 3: The Chicago Word Fluency Test • Example 4: The Wechsler Memory Scale (Revised) • Example 5: Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test • Conclusion
  3. 3. What is Neuropsychology • Study of brain–behavior relations (sometimes • referred to as functional localization) Functional Lateralization – refers to notion that • a function may depend on one side (hemisphere) of the brain
  4. 4. Definition of Neurology. Neurology: The medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, which includes the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves.
  5. 5. NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING Neuropsychological testing represents a specialized area of assessment within clinical psychology. The intent of neuropsychological tests is to measure cognitive functioning or impairment of the brain and its specific components or structures. Medical procedures such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) scans can show that part of the brain looks abnormal, but neuropsychological tests show how that part of the brain is actually functioning. Such tests are especially useful for targeted assessment of problems that might result from a head injury, prolonged alcohol or drug use, or a degenerative brain illness.
  6. 6. Some neuropsychological testing procedures are lengthy, comprehensive batteries that include a broad array of subtests.  The patterns of scores on these subtests can go a long way toward pinpointing specific cognitive weaknesses. Other neuropsychological tests are much briefer and are typically used as screens for neuropsychological impairment rather than full-fledged neuropsychological assessment tools. Let’s consider one of the batteries— the Halstead-Reitan—and one of the screens—the Bender-Gestalt—in more detail.
  7. 7. Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery • The Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery (HRB) is a battery of eight standardized • neuropsychological tests. It is suitable for clients of age 15 years and above, but • alternate versions are available for younger clients. The HRB is administered only as a • whole battery; its components are not to be administered separately. Thus, it is a thorough • (and rather lengthy) neuropsychological battery. Essentially, its primary purpose is to • identify people with brain damage and, to the extent possible, provide detailed information • or hypotheses about any brain damage identified, including specific cognitive • impairments or physiological regions of the brain that may be deficient. The findings of • the HRB can help in diagnosis and treatment of problems related to brain malfunction
