Tracking Brain Function
ASSESSMENT OF MEMORY AND ATTENTION
Brain function is complex and multifaceted. Proper assessment helps doctors diagnose and treat brain conditions that affect thinking, memory and attention - dementia, ADHD, and others.
We offer several levels of cognitive assessment. The most basic is a memory quiz. Interactive testing is done for screening. If needed, we recommend comprehensive testing with NeuroTrax computerized cognitive assessment.
