Neuropsychological Tests are done by Paul Michael Ramirez, Ph.D., a certified Neuropsychologist with a wide experience in diagnosing, assessing and treating patients with traumatic Brain Injury. Dr. Ramirez is a professor in Long Island University and taught at Hunter College.
Neuropsychological tests measure and quantify specific parameters of mental functions, such as short and long term memories, different causes for speech language and learning impairments, and impaired motor, visual and spatial functions, among others. The results often provide valuable information about the location of the disorder in the brain.
We usually do neuropsychological tests when dealing with neurological or neuropsychiatric disorders i.e. traumatic brain injury and brain concussion, Multiple Sclerosis and Brain Stroke, as well as in ADD/ADHD and Learning Disorders.
