Neuropsychology is the study of how the brain and the rest of the nervous system influence behavior and cognition. A neuropsychological evaluation utilizes a number of resources, including clinical interview, review of medical records, collateral contact, and a flexible battery of tests to evaluate neurologic functioning. Neuropsychological assessment measures cover a range of cognitive domains, including: intelligence, visual/spatial skills, verbal skills, executive functioning (planning, abstraction, conceptualization), verbal and visual memory, attention, motivation, sensorimotor function, quality of life, and mood and personality functioning.

- Memory loss
- Seizure disorder
- Traumatic or anoxic brain injury
- Cerebral dysfunction from toxic exposure
- Cerebral mass
- Cerebrovascular disease
