Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV is reported to be part of a simple cognitive test that is given to patients to screen them for cognitive decline.

On a sample exam, those tested are asked to draw a clock; to count backward by sevens from 100; to name the date, month, year and place; and to identify drawings of animals like a lion or camel. They are also read a list of five words and asked to repeat them in order twice, then asked that again five minutes later to see if they still recall them. [Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.]
