Abstract

The purpose of this study was to: (a) compare the performance of healthy adults and adults with aphasia on ability to convey main events in pictured stimuli and (b) establish session-to-session reliability of the authors’ main event measure. The main event measure was designed to quantify participants’ abilities to convey an understanding of the central relationships between concepts depicted in pictured stimuli. Participants were older adults with and without brain damage. Results indicated that healthy adults told a significantly higher proportion of main events than adults with aphasia and that for both groups, the main events measure was stable across sessions.
