Clinical Neuroscience for Communication Disorders: Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology offers  a comprehensive and easy-to-understand introduction to neuroscience for  undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the field of  communication disorders.

Packed with features to aid  student understanding, this textbook introduces the neurologic  underpinnings of systems involved in communication (speech, language,  cognition, and hearing) and swallowing, from the nervous system to the  anatomy of the head and neck. A highly readable writing style makes  abstract and complex material accessible to students and provides just  the right amount of information to challenge yet not overwhelm students.

What  sets this book apart is the extensive infusion of clinical application.  Each chapter begins by tying the content to the everyday clinical  applications for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and related  professionals and includes clinical cases to illustrate neural  functions. In addition to coverage of the main systems, this text  contains chapters devoted to neuroplasticity, communication, and  cognition to move beyond basic anatomy to the key principles of  contemporary neuroscience and application of the concepts discussed.  Addiitonally, explicit connections are drawn between cranial nerves, the  oral mechanism examination, and clinicall swallowing assessment. The  clinical cases cover a variety of both pediatric and adult scenarios  designed to highlight the interconnectedness of neural systems and the  complexity of neurologically-based communication disorders. The cases  span the breadth of clinical practice—developmental and acquired  disorders, pediatric and adult cases, and disorders of speech, language,  cognition, and hearing—and are cross-referenced with each of the other  chapters for improved understanding.

Key Features

  • More than 150 customized illustrations solidify connections between anatomy and physiology
  • Clinical cases throughout the text and expanded versions of the cases in a stand-alone  chapter illustrate clinical relevance of neuroanatomy and  neurophysiology
  • Bolded keywords highlight foundational concepts and terminology
  • Boxes throughout  the text offer an opportunity for applying learning through  applications, exercises, glossaries of key terms, and clinical cases
  • End-of-chapter summaries provide an overview of the key concepts within the chapter in plain language
  • A bulleted list of key concepts concludes each chapter to reinforce learning outcomes
  • References and further reading augment student learning
