ABSTRACT
This study presents a review about the uses of Wisconsin Card Sorting Test in psychiatry disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism and aging. We searched more than 50 articles in MEDLINE, ProQuest and EBSCO databases from 1995 to 2005. 47 articles were selected and reported. The test was included in 61.7% of the studies related to assessment in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, 19.5% in psychiatry disorders, 10.63% in autism, and 8.51% in aging. 100% of the articles showed quantitative analyses, 12.77% exposed variations in the application of the test (number of cards or virtual sceneries applications). Our findings suggest the needed to complement the quantitative analyses with qualitative analyses.
