A neuropsych evaluation is a complex series of tests that determine possible neurological involvement of the motor, psychological and cognitive functions of the brain. I know, clear as mud, but blame it on my background and education, thank God!
Hi, I'm a stroke survivor myself, and a former medical student, that has undergone 3 separate neuropsych evaluations in the last 10 years to chart my progress. Not only does it determine any psychological involvement (depression, anxiety, and so on), it also measures memory (short-term, long-term, and so on), the ability to reason, logic, math skills, motor (hand-eye coordination and so forth) skills, and the list goes on. It can be very exhausting both physically and emotionally depending on your level of involvement/disability.
Hope this helps. In the end, the testing is to your benefit, so don't sweat it.
