Tweet If a person suffers a stroke, will he or she be able to drive again? Go back to work? Pay the bills? What about the returning soldier from war who a has traumatic brain injury, or the person involved in a car crash incurring injury to the head - or the person recently diagnosed with a brain tumor?

For example, will a patient with a brain tumor experience any cognitive deficits? If so, what will those deficits be? Neuropsychologists assess for cognitive consequences such as loss of memory, language impairment, or the ability to plan, execute, and terminate certain acts and processes — such as those needed to function in work settings.

Assessments are also used to determine behavioral and sensory consequences of brain abnormalities. Has the patient started exhibiting socially inappropriate behaviors, or exhibited mobility problems? Is he or she able to drive a car? Is vision affected?

In addition to assisting healthcare providers, neuropsychological assessments are also used by lawyers and the courts in determining financial compensation awards for clients hurt in accidents. Specially designed tests are the main tools used in nearly all forms of neuropsychological assessment.

However, the combination of neuroimaging devices and technologies plus assessment is becoming more widely available. For instance, if an assessment is used to determine a particular cognitive function, such as the ability to speak and understand written and spoken words, neuropsychologists can test these skills as an individual undergoes a non-invasive brain scan. For more information on see neuroimaging. The tests are also used to track the progression of a disease, and plan rehabilitation treatments and programs.

A large number of reliable and valid neuropsychological tests exist, giving those performing assessments a large number of options from which to select. One example of a series of comprehensive neuropsychological tests is the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery.

A massive assessment taking five to six hours, the Halstead-Reitan consists of eight separate tests measuring a number of brain and nervous system functions, including: Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test.

The actual detection time depends on dose, drug tolerance, body mass, age, overall health, pH, frequency of use, and individual metabolism. During centrifugation, the gel moves to create a barrier between cells and serum, providing access to the serum for various chemistry, serology, and other procedures. Serum separator tubes are recommended for most testing, but please check individual specimen requirements for restrictions. When using a serum separator tube, collect the specimen using standard venipuncture technique. Gently invert the tube five 5 times to mix the clot activator with the blood. Avoid vigorous agitation of collected specimens. Allow the tube to clot for minutes in a vertical position.
