Job Description for Neuropsychologist

A neuropsychologist is a psychologist specializing in the physical structure of the brain and how behaviors, mental abilities, and emotions relate to the brain and its systems. They are generally called upon to evaluate brain function when brain injury is obvious (as in physical trauma) or impairment is suspected due to aging, illness, or as a result of treatment. Patients' current faculty is evaluated through a series of tests involving such functions as memory, recognition, following directions, simple math, language, emotion, and other physical and mental attributes. A patient being evaluated by a neuropsychologist typically spends six to eight hours in initial evaluation, and subsequent examinations may be deemed necessary to evaluate progress or decline. The neuropsychologist also provides possible treatment options to specialists, therapists, and other relevant professionals.
