Dr. Kinsora has been practicing in Las Vegas, Nevada since 1992. The practice is now limited to neuropsychological assessment.
The vast majority of our referrals come from neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other medical specialties. However, we also work on complex medical-legal cases and cases pertaining to worker's compensation claims, and disability benefits. Our medical-legal forensic cases involve the assessments pertaining to both civil and criminal proceedings.
Patients referred to our clinic for neuropsychological evaluation are diagnosed with neurological disorders ranging from genetic disorders (such as Williams syndrome, Angleman syndrome, and Fragile X syndrome) and neurodevelopmental conditions, such as ADHD, high functioning autism spectrum disorder (Asperger's), fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, and learning disorders, to traumatic brain injury, stroke, Parkinson's disease, Lewy body disease, primary progressive aphasia, Alzheimer's disease, and other neurologic conditions.
MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY/CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT
Dr. Kinsora co-founded a mild Traumatic Brain Injury/concussion management program in Nevada that consults with athletic trainers, coaches, and physicians on recovery and return to play decisions. Between 2004 and 2019 Dr. Kinsora has consulted on over 2200 concussions in the athletic program alone. In addition, Dr. Kinsora has conducted full neurocognitive evaluations on several thousand adults with varying levels of traumatic brain injury in his private practice.
THE ASSESSMENT OF COGNITION
As a formally trained neuropsychologist, Dr. Kinsora adheres to findings in neuroscience research to guide his assessment of cognition. Although each assessment is customized to the patient, an assessment of cognition may evaluate such areas as:
- Intellectual capacity
- Academic achievement
- simple attentional buffering
- concentration (mental tracking, mental manipulation)
- processing speed
- sustained attention
- reaction time
- expressive language
- receptive language
- abstract reasoning
- spatial processing/construction
- memory/new learning
- executive control
- self regulatory skills
- deductive reasoning
- response inhibition
- motor speed/strength/fine motor dexterity
- visual field sensitivity
- tactile perception
- olfactory functioning
- personality functioning
* OBLIGATORY FINE PRINT: Each neuropsychologist at Center for Applied Neuroscience operates completely independently. Center for Applied Neuroscience is simply a name given to our collective shared space of neuroscience specialists and is not a legal entity, corporation, or legal partnership.
Specializing in the assessment of cognitive processing
in patients with neurological disorders,
acquired brain injury, and sports related concussions.
