Abstract

The purpose of this study is to design and evaluate the validity of the Poreh and Martincin Naming Tests, used to evaluate naming difficulties in demented populations. The Poreh and Martincin Naming Tests will be two new computerized tests used to examine anomia, a form of aphasia in which one has difficulty with naming. Both community and clinical groups were sampled, with each participant being administered the Boston Naming Test, the Poreh Naming Test, and Martincin Naming Test, and a task of verbal fluency. Each community sample participant over the age of 65 and every clinical sample participant also received the St. Louis University Mental Status Exam
