Hi,

Thanks for writing in.
Neuropsychological testing includes tests to measure psychological functions associated with a particular brain structure.
They include a number of cognitive tests. Once the tests are completed the scores are matched against those of control group or the general population.

This link has lists of tests covered under neuropsychological testing.
Hope this helps!
