I am so sorry to hear of your recent fall!!! Wow that is scary!! Please take care. Ok I don't know that much about the tests other than they are called neuro-psychological tests. They are not meant to be negative. They are meant to diagnose weaknesses in cognition so that neuro-therapy can be specifically offered. There is much they can do!!! There are simple exercises that can help with cognition. The therapy that can be delivered can cause new neural pathways to be created which can minimize and even elmimate some congitive problems! It is good stuff.
I am assuming they will do memory testing, concentration junk, processing speed things like that. It will probably be a series of activities and puzzle like tests. There will probably also be a lot of symptom checklists.
Go at it with a positive attitude and remember, the goal is to identify weaknesses that can be addressed with therapy. It is all good!!! Please keep us posted on this!!! I want to know more.
