Normal, healthy cognitive aging impacts most people causing some changes. It may include:
Cognitive decline that extends beyond normal aging could be a sign of a memory disorder, such as dementia. Estimates suggest 50 million people are living with dementia worldwide.
Clinical neuropsychology is a sub-type of psychology that provides assessment of thinking skills, behaviors and emotions that can change due to a variety of medical factors. Our providers are licensed clinicians with doctorates in clinical psychology with expert training and experience in memory and cognitive assessment. WakeMed’s neuropsychological assessment services are available with a physician referral. Evaluation typically includes an interview with patient and family members and formal cognitive testing, including intellectual functioning, memory, language, visuospatial abilities, motor skills, complex thinking skills and attention. Such evaluations can determine if thinking skills fall within or below expectations for the patient’s given age and help diagnose the potential cause of cognitive decline. With an appropriate diagnosis through memory assessment, WakeMed neuropsychologists assist referring providers in developing a treatment plan for the patient.
