The administration of neuropsychological tests is a core part of neuropsychological assessment. By measuring cognition functioning, neuropsychological tests are carried out to examine the extent of impairment caused by brain injury or neurological/psychiatric illness. Aspects of cognitive functioning that are assessed typically include memory, intelligence, language, visuoperception, attention, and executive-function. A brief introduction will be provided to neuropsychological tests on perception, attention, and executive function with some examples of commonly used tests, e.g. d-2 attention endurance test, Stroop task,Trail-making test, etc.
