Abstract

This retrospective data analysis examined non-linguistic, cognitive functions that may play a role in mild anomia: selective attention and automatic vs. controlled processing. Participants with mild anomia and typical controls were tested using the Covert Orienting of Visuospatial Attention Test, alone and with linguistic interference, at two ISIs representing automatic and controlled processing. Participants with anomia showed deficits in automatic but not controlled processing on the COVAT alone, and deficits in selective attention on the COVAT with interference. Results suggest these cognitive abilities should be assessed in individuals reporting anomia who score near or within normal limits on language assessments.
