Tests applied in the short form: After Attention-Concentration, Continuous Attention, Learning Test and reasoning tests in a computer environment;
At least two attention tests, at least two executive function tests, memory test, IQ test, Perception test, vision-spatial skills test.
Tests applied in long-form:
After Attention-Concentration, Continuous Attention, Learning Test and reasoning Tests in a computer environment;
At least two attention tests, at least two executive function tests, memory test, IQ test, Perception test, Visio-spatial skills test.

Volumetric MRI, on the other hand, takes the volume measurements of each region of the brain with an automatic analysis that takes hours after the shooting. It works well for tracking changes after many years. Measuring bioelectrical activity, which is the final product of biological processes in the brain, is possible with a series of "Neuropsychological Tests" and "Quantitative EEG" (Brain Mapping). Scientific research has demonstrated that psychiatric diseases are associated with a disruption in electrical and chemical transmission between brain cells. Therefore, it is increasingly important to understand whether brain functions are normal according to the age group in the clinical evaluation of a person with a neuropsychiatric disorder. With imaging methods such as brain tomography and MRI, brain tumor and so on. It is understood whether there are masses such as taking up space. However, it is not understood whether the brain is working properly. For this purpose, it is necessary to perform functional imaging of the brain and measure various cognitive abilities.
