Neuropsychology and neurological disorders
The relationship between the brain and behavior is complicated. When the former affects the latter, Norton Children’s Hospital’s neuropsychology team is equipped to evaluate why — and figure out how to treat the issue. Our experienced physicians are dedicated to caring for children in Louisville and Southern Indiana with some of the most complex neurological system and nervous system development disorders.
Our staff is experienced in neuropsychology and includes several specialists. Bradley S. Folley, Ph.D., ABPP, is one of them. Dr. Folley is board certified in clinical neuropsychology through the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology. He performs outpatient and inpatient evaluations, as well as Wada testing and brain mapping procedures that determine the side of the brain responsible for language and memory function prior to neurosurgical procedures.
What exactly do neuropsychologists look at?
A thorough medical examination will assess muscle strength, movement, balance, speech, memory, nerve function in the head and neck and other cognitive functions. We use the most advanced diagnostic techniques available. Based off this information, the neuropsychology team and others on your child’s medical team will determine a care plan that meets your child’s unique needs.
