Neuropsychological Evaluation Services

The Neuropsychology Program is a clinical specialty service located at both Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital. The program offers neuropsychological evaluation of memory and other cognitive functions on both an inpatient and outpatient basis, and always in a supportive atmosphere. Results of the evaluation can assist with accurate diagnosis and lead to specific treatment recommendations.

Services include comprehensive memory and cognitive assessment and treatment recommendations for known or suspected neurologic or neuropsychiatric disorders, such as memory disorders, dementia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumors, epilepsy, and neurocognitive and behavioral impairments resulting from medical illness.

Program staff work closely with referring physicians (including primary care physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists) and provide them with a detailed evaluation, along with recommendations for treatment.

In addition to memory and cognitive assessment, the Neuropsychology Program also actively engages in many areas of research related to the diagnosis and treatment of geriatric cognitive disorders, and caregiver stress.
