I didn’t post when I had neuropsychology tests. I was a lurker then lol
Neurophysology tests are not about your mental state, they are about seeing how your brain handles tasks and the tasks showing neurological damage. Or not. For instance, with me I can no longer multi-task. Take a task, add noise, distractions and I struggle to complete the task. I also have problems with memory, word finding, previously learned skills, processing information (slowly)…this was not alway the case, it is because of the damage to areas of my brain from demylination.
Neuropsychiatry is about mental state.
It depends on which consultant and what their speciality is. Is it neuropsychology? Or, neuropsychiatry? These are not interchangable terms.
So, neuropsychiatrist test - studying mental disorders relating and attributing to the nervous system.
A neuropsychological test - studying cognitive function relating to specific areas of the brain.
Hope that helps. Even I am confused now!
