The Spanish version of the Boston Naming Test (BNT) has enjoyed widespread use in many clinical and research studies since its introduction. However, there are no normative data available for this test, and the original Englishlanguage order of presentation is maintained. The purpose of this study was to collect normative information in Buenos Aires and to evaluate age and education effects for the BNT. We studied 200 independent healthy controls between 30 and 82 years of age. No subjects had any history of neurological or psychiatric disorders or alcohol abuse. Neuropsychological evaluation included the Mini-MentalState Examination, Signoret Memory Battery, Serial Frontal Test, Phonologic and Semantic Fluency Test, and Hamilton Depression Scale. The Spanish version of the Boston Naming Test was administered according to the standard protocol. We observed that naming abilities remain generally intact throughout advancing age. Results on the BNT were significantly correlated with education @< .001). We generatednormative data for the adult population of Buenos Aires and rearranged the order of presentation of the stimulus items according to frequency of correct responses given by our subjects.
