It will determine if he has developed an attention deficit, memory loss, muscle control problems, speech processing disorders or sensory perception disorders.

Neuropsych evaluation will tell you along with the neurological problems what all psychological problems he has due to the brain damage. They also tell you how to deal with your husband from the psychological point of view. Because one has to be psychologically fit to remain fit.
