McKinzey, R. K., (2001). A judge's introduction to neuropsychological assessment. Court Review, 32-38.
Neuropsychological assessment is the testing of cortical functioning designed to diagnose neurological disorders that cause psychological symptoms. The results may not agree with neuroimaging, which are tests of structure. Neuropsychologists will appear in the same settings as psychologists and are subject to the same rules. Understanding a neuropsychologist's opinion includes the steps of deciphering which tests are given, whether other sources for abnormal results have been considered, and the logic of the application of the results to the legal question at hand. The latter will always be attacked by the adversary, but more sophisticated "learned treatise" attacks are possible. The testimony will be smoothest if proper planning and preparation are undertaken by the presenting and cross-examining attorneys.
