SERAFINI, Adriana Jung; FONSECA, Rochele Paz; BANDEIRA, Denise Ruschel  and  PARENTE, Maria Alice de Mattos Pimenta. A national view on the research concerning the neuropsychological evaluation of language. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp. 34-49. ISSN 1414-9893.

Although there is a great variety of international tests on language evaluation in the neuropsychological context, there’s a significant demand of techniques adapted to the social, linguistic and cultural reality of Brazil in the clinical and research domains. This study aims to present a national view on research on language assessment in the context of neuropsychology. To accomplish this, a search for Brazilian studies in the following thesis and dissertation databases was performed: IBICT Teses and Index Psi Teses, and in LILACS, SciELO and Index Psi Science Journals. As a result, little research concerning the neuropsychological evaluation of language was verified, and the majority of papers was published in medical journals. Not many made reference to some type of instrument, and those focused on psychometrics were rare. However, an increase of papers on the neuropsychological evaluation of language is observed, mainly during the last six years.

Keywords : Neuropsychology; Neuropsychological evaluation; Language; Psychometrics.
