Neuropsychology examines the brain and applies the science of the brain's structure and function to address a variety of complex conditions, both physical and emotional/thought-based processes.  

The University of Minnesota Adult Neuropsychology Laboratory provides neuropsychological and assessments for patients with a wide variety of known or suspected brain conditions. The laboratory is staffed by licensed and board certified neuropsychologists. Patients are generally referred for a neuropsychological evaluation when there is a concern about cognitive dysfunction. Clinic staff utilize standardized psychological assessment tools to quantify cognitive and psychological strengths and weaknesses in a variety of domains (e.g., memory, language, attention, executive functioning, visually mediated processing, and psychomotor processing). The results from the evaluation provide clues in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of brain regions and systems, which in turn can provide information about possible etiologic considerations and treatment planning. Impressions are typically then provided to patients and the referring providers about the results from the exam. Further, concrete recommendations and guidelines are provided to the patient and the provider. 

Our service commonly sees patients with a variety of conditions including cerebrovascular disorders, organ transplant, movement disorders, epilepsy, dementia, traumatic brain injury, demyelinating disorders, psychiatric disorders, and medical conditions for which there is a cognitive component.

 

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), combined with hand therapy, is currently a research-based treatment. It is intended to help people with stroke achieve greater recovery of hand function. The hand weakness following a stroke stems from brain neurons destroyed by the stroke, as well as from surviving neurons. The surviving neurons become dormant (not active) through inactivity and suppression from the non-stroke hemisphere. In some patients, rTMS can help dormant neurons reactivate and thereby improve voluntary hand function. More information about this exciting new service.
