Mild Traumatic Brain Injury ( MTBI) - Proving the Injury Part 2
A neuropsychological assessment has two core components. The injured person participates in series of tests called neuropsychological tests which are scored by a neuropsychologist. This same neuropsychologist also meets with the injured individual so that the neuropsychologist can attempt to evaluate that person's metal status.
The purpose of neuropsychological testing is to try and determine if and the degree to which an injured person demonstrates an "abnormality" as relates to their brain and/or psychological function.
To take it a step further, neuropsychological testing can be of assistance in attempting to define the nature, extent and location of a mild traumatic brain injury which an individual has suffered.
The benefit of neuropsychological testing ,when it comes to proving a mild traumatic brain injury case, is that it involves the administration of a series of standardized tests. The data derived from these tests results in a series of scores.These scores are measured against a series of norms.And how the injured person's scores stack up agains the normal range for each of these tests is used to determine whether a mild traumatic brain injury was suffered. As a result, neuropsychological testing provides a method by which impairment arrising from a mild traumatic brain injury can be quantified.
