Acoustic-mnestic Aphasia

Acoustic-mnestic aphasia (also known as anomic aphasia, amnestic aphasia, and nominal aphasia) is a part of the spectrum of aphasic problems that are the result of injury (due to accident or illness) to the brain. Acoustic-mnestic aphasia is specifically the inability to name objects, qualities, or conditions. This can occur following a serious head injury or as the result of a stroke. This is why many individuals who have suffered TBI (traumatic brain injury) or a severe stroke will have a hard time attaching names to items, feelings, or qualities.
