Objectives: The brain’s widespread neural functions lead to aphasia in which the patients experience difficulties in cognitive and language functions. Memory, type, and severity of aphasia are associated with language and the naming process. In the current study, we investigated the relationship between memory, type, and severity of aphasia using the confrontation naming test in post-stroke patients with chronic aphasia.
Methods: This research was a descriptive-analytic cross-sectional study. We selected 45 chronic aphasia patients aged 35-70 years. The participants with a mild to moderate score in Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) were assessed with the Persian naming test, Wechsler Memory Scale, and Persian Western Aphasia Battery.
Results: There was a significant difference between memory with correct answers without a cue, correct answers with a semantic cue, and the total correct answers from confrontation naming (P<0.001, r=0.62; P=0.01, r=0.37; and P<0.001, r=0.71; respectively). Furthermore, the results indicated a significant difference between the type of aphasia with subtests of confrontation naming involving correct answers with semantic cues and total correct answers (P=0.02). Also, the results showed a significant difference between the severity of aphasia with correct answers without a cue, correct answers with a semantic cue, and the total correct answers from confrontation naming (P<0.001, r=0.77; P=0.03, r=0.31; and P<0.001, r=0.67; respectively). In comparing semantic and phonetic cues, memory, type, and severity of aphasia indicated significant association only with semantic cues.
Discussion: There is an association between memory, type, and severity of aphasia with confrontation naming in patients with aphasia. The data have highlighted the importance of factors that need to be considered to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan to achieve further improvement in naming skills.
