Anatomy & Physiology for Speech, Language, and Hearing, Sixth Edition provides a solid foundation in anatomical and physiological principles relevant to communication sciences and disorders. This bestselling textbook beloved by instructors and students integrates clinical information with everyday experiences to reveal how anatomy and physiology relate to the speech, language, and hearing systems. Combining comprehensive coverage with abundant, beautiful full-color illustrations and a strong practical focus, the text makes complex material approachable even for students with little or no background in anatomy and physiology.


The text includes numerous full-color anatomical images to help students form a clear, accurate understanding of the classical framework of the speech, language, and hearing systems. Photographs provide a real-life look at the body parts and functions. Use these images as reference for accuracy in describing body systems, parts, and processes. 


New to the Sixth Edition:

*Updated and expanded information on the physiology of swallowing that includes discussion of orofacial-myofunctional disorders and other swallowing dysfunction arising from physical etiologies.

*More physiology content, including an introduction to the effects of pathology on communication within each of the physical systems of communication. 

*Many new photographs of specimens have been added, with a focus on a clear and accurate understanding of the classical framework of the speech, language, and hearing systems. 

*Clinical Notes boxes link anatomy and physiology with disorders seen by speech-language pathologists and audiologists to provide real-world clinical applications for students.

About the author

J. Anthony (Tony) Seikel, PhD, is emeritus faculty at Idaho State University, where he taught graduate and undergraduate coursework in neuroanatomy and neuropathology over the course of his career in Communication Sciences and Disorders. He is co-author of numerous chapters, books and research publications in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. His current research is examining the relationship between orofacial myofunctional disorders and oropharyngeal dysphagia.

David G. Drumright, BS, grew up in Oklahoma and Kansas, taught electronics at DeVry for several years, then spent 20 years as a technician in acoustics and speech research. He developed many programs and devices for analysis and instruction in acoustics and speech/hearing. He has been semi-retired since 2002, working on graphics and programming for courseware.

Daniel J. Hudock, PhD, CCC-SLP, is an Associate Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the College of Rehabilitation and Communication Sciences at Idaho State University. He is currently serving as the Speech Language Pathology Graduate Program Co-Director and Founding PhD in Rehabilitation and Communication Sciences Program Co-Coordinator. He has published over 30 articles and given over 100 presentations with several recent ones being invited half-day and full-day podium talks. In his TEDx Talk entitled, “Please Don’t Finish My Sentence”, he presents about his experience living with a stutter. Dr. Hudock has successfully completed several grants and is an avid volunteer within the profession and associations focused on fluency disorders, including serving in leadership positions, including the coordinating committee of ASHA’s SIG 4 on Fluency Disorders. His two primary tracts of research focus on 1) better understanding, assessing, and treating fluency disorders through holistic interprofessional partnerships with mental health professionals and 2) the neuroscience of speech perception and production in people who stutter using high-density EEG and time-frequency analysis. He is the founding director of the Northwest Center for Fluency Disorders that offers an intensive interprofessional stuttering clinic with speech-language pathologists collaborating with counselors and clinical psychologists through an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) informed framework in the treatment of adolescent and adult stuttering. Lastly, he has taught courses on Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech and Hearing Mechanisms and Speech and Hearing Science for over a decade, starting as a graduate teaching assistant at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina.

Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology for Speech and Hearing Sciences provides a thorough yet readable examination of the neuroanatomical underpinnings within communication sciences and disorders. The textbook is designed for undergraduate or graduate courses related to the neuroscience of speech and hearing. Each chapter begins with detailed learning outcomes and also sets the context for the content in understandable terms, providing the student with an understanding of the importance of knowing the material. Additionally, each chapter ends with study questions to reinforce the content and check comprehension.

After introduction to the field and to anatomical concepts, the text takes the student from discussion of neurons and other basic components to examination of basic reflexes and sensorimotor integration. The following chapters focus on the cerebral cortex and its function, particularly as related to neurophysiology of speech and hearing. The next section of the text discusses subcortical structures, the brainstem, cranial nerves, cerebellum and pathways. The text culminates in discussion of motor control for speech and swallowing.

Key Features:

More than 175 images and photographs presented in full-colorMore than 65 tables that provide succinct depth and detail to the content16 neurological fully-annotated case studies with SLP diagnostic information, as well as 6 cases from neurosurgeons that include MRI and/or video45 boxed notes give informative and fascinating support to the content, including focus on neuroscience as it relates to speech-language pathology and audiologyCoverage of the neurophysiology of swallowingDetailed discussion of auditory pathway and signal analysisClearly written with abundant supporting citationsKey terms are highlighted throughout the text and included in a glossaryDisclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such as documents, audio, and video, etc.) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book. 

 

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture
