The Hatfield Image Test (HIT) is a new corpus of colour images, obtained from photographs of real objects to provide a more realistic representation of the visual stimuli featured. Items have been standardised for several important psycholinguistic variables, namely; age of acquisition, colour diagnosticity, familiarity, name agreement, visual complexity, and word frequency. As the images are in colour, this also allows a greater degree of manipulation of their physical and perceptual properties, thus allowing researchers to further explore the effects of particular characteristics on visual object recognition. In addition, the items featured vary in regard to naming difficulty, thus allowing researchers to select stimuli of appropriate difficulty as required.
