BORGES, Jeane Lessinger; TRENTINI, Clarissa Marceli; BANDEIRA, Denise Ruschel  and  DELL'AGLIO, Débora Dalbosco. Neuropsychological assessment of psychological disorders in childhood: a review study. PsicoUSF [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.1, pp. 125-133. ISSN 1413-8271.

This study comprises a review about neuropsychological assessment of cognitive deficits associated to psychological disorders in childhood and adolescence, including researches published between 2000 and 2006. A survey of national and international publications indexed on Medline, SciELo and PsychoInfo was carried out. The results showed an increase of scientific publications within the neuropsychological assessment area of the Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, mood disorders and conduct disorder. A lack of national studies was observed, indicating the necessity of more research in the neuropsychological assessment in Brazil.
