At the Bobath Center in Barcelona we offer neuropsychology therapy to family members and patients affected by brain damage.
Having suffered a brain accident, in many cases can cause an emotional response in the patient and in his or her family that can also be addressed in neuropsychological treatment.
In these sessions, the neuropsychologist individually performs a complete assessment of the patient’s cognitive, behavioral and emotional functions through the use of standardized tests, a clinical interview with the patient and his / her family and a clinical assessment. With all the information thus obtained on the altered and preserved functions, the neuropsychological rehabilitation program is elaborated, with the aim of achieving maximum functionality for the patient. The neuropsychology therapies that we offer in the neurorehabilitation clinic in Barcelona are performed individually to be able to focus the treatment to the needs of the patient.
Clinical neuropsychology is a discipline that uses the scientific method to study the effects of an injury, damage or anomalous functioning in the central nervous system and the consequences this has on cognitive, behavioral and emotional processes. Patients with brain damage may present alterations in different functions, some examples being:
- Attention: difficulty following the thread of a conversation, inability to identify or respond to stimuli that occur in the contralateral space to the injury (heminegligence), difficulty in concentration, etc.
- Memory: difficulties in remembering information both in the short and long term. There may be problems to encode, store and / or evoke information.
- Executive functions: the patient with brain damage presents problems to know what to do, how and when. Executive functions include working memory, cognitive flexibility, organization and planning, social cognition, solving problems, reasoning, and so on.
- Gnosias: problems to realize what we see, hear, feel and smell. As well as of the own difficulties (anosognosia)
- Praxias: alterations that are not due to a motor or sensory injury and that cause difficulties to carry out movements directed to an end, such as dressing, eating, etc. or limitations in the ability to manipulate objects, such as a broom or a toothbrush.
- Behavior: changes in the behavior, character or previous personality of the patient who has suffered a brain accident
(Español) Desde que vengo a esta clínica he mejorado mucho. Primmero llevava una ferula aparatosa y ahora una más discreta, ya ando casi sola. Sobre el centro me ha comentado un vecino, es como una familia. Las fisios te animan, no hay que estar en casa, hay que hacer mucha rehabilitación de la parte neurológica. Estoy super contenta.
