The authors conducted psychopathological and neuropsychological assessments on a pilot sample of 15 nondemented elderly depressed patients at the outset of inpatient treatment and again after 6 months. Pretreatment performance on a test of confrontation naming was predictive of severity of depressive symptoms at follow-up. These findings tentatively suggest that the naming ability of elderly depressed subjects may have prognostic significance.
