Abstract

The standardised set of pictures by Snodgrass and Vanderwart (1980) has been used extensively in literature investigated difference and similarities in the processing of pictures. Until now there have not been data for these pictures from native Greek speaking population. The aims of this study were: a. to investigate the psychometric properties of these pictures in the native Greek speaking normal elderly population in terms of name agreement, image agreement, familiarity and visual complexity, and b. to demonstrate how variables of picture processing effect the performance of aphasic Greek speaking population during verbal and written naming.
