Designed to highlight deficits in visual confrontation naming skills and to identify aphasia, the NAB Naming Test shows examinees a series of images and asks them to name the object in the picture. Use of digital photographs makes this test ecologically valid by providing visual depictions that appear more realistic than the line drawings used by similar instruments.
