The goal of neuropsychological testing is to measure certain functions of the brain, and make sense of an individual’s behavior, learning, cognitive processing, and perhaps even potential to achieve. There is not one single test, but a “battery” of different tests (individualized to the needs of the person at hand) that tap into different aspects of brain functioning. For instance, there are measures that tap into lanugage functioning, measures that assess non-verbal functioning (visual/spatial processing), measures that assess immediate memory, longer term memory, planning, organization, the ability to integrate parts into wholes, etc.
