Procedure - Neurocognitive Memory Testing

Neurocognitive memory testing (neuropsychological testing) analyzes a person’s cognitive ability related to memory, language, emotions, processing speed motor, attention, visuospatial skills, and problem-solving. This Ogden Clinic memory test is non-invasive and can be done in a one-on-one setting for maximum comfort. This can help your doctor identify underlying health conditions which are affecting the function of the brain.

Neurocognitive memory testing at Ogden Clinic can aid doctors in diagnosing various conditions and their side effects including:

  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Brain tumors
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

This testing not only diagnoses the above conditions, it also monitors a patient’s progress as they move through treatment or rehabilitation. During the test, you will speak with your neurologist about your life, medical history, and your concerns regarding your brain function. You may be asked to read, write, or draw to answer questions and complete tasks that will show your doctor how your condition affects your coping skills or mood. Once the results are complied, they can be used to identify a health condition or be compared to the results of previous tests, to measure progress and evaluate the effectiveness of a current course of treatment.

Your Ogden Clinic neurologist may recommend neurocognitive memory testing if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Trouble with planning events or organizing your schedule
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating or paying attention
  • Distressed thinking or confusion
  • Struggling to communicate (trouble finding the right words and/or understanding what others are saying)
  • Dramatic changes in visual perception or spatial skills
  • Difficulty reading or writing
  • Decreased thinking speed
  • Increased impulsiveness

A neurocognitive memory test is not designed for you to pass or fail, but rather to collect accurate results about the things affecting your health and daily life. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or are concerned in general about the health of your brain and cognitive abilities, contact the staff at Ogden Clinic Neurology to schedule an appointment for neurocognitive memory testing.
