    Test results give your doctor an overall picture of how well you are able to think, reason and remember. Your doctor may discuss some results with you right away. Complete results may not be available for several weeks.

    Testing can also identify mood or emotional problems.

    Many conditions can change the results of a neuropsychological test. For example, depression can slow your thinking. But your doctor will consider your other symptoms when looking at the test results.
