Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing by Bernard Rousseau and Ryan C. Branski fulfills a growing need for a contemporary resource for students in speech and hearing science training programs.
Extending well beyond traditional speech science and human anatomy, this publication encompasses the latest advances in the understanding of human physiology, basic cell functions, biological control systems, and coordinated body functions.
Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing includes award-winning anatomic artwork from Thieme's Atlas of Anatomy, adding a rich visual basis to the clinical facets of speech, language, swallowing, hearing, and balance. The book begins with fundamentals of human anatomy and physiology such as embryology and development of speech and hearing mechanisms.
The second section details nervous system functions including central and peripheral motor control. The physiology of respiration, phonation, articulation and resonance, hearing, swallowing, and balance are covered in the last six chapters.
This book serves as a primer to all of the concepts necessary for Communication Sciences and Disorders students to understand in order to succeed in their studies
The book is heavily illustrated with detailed and modern anatomical drawings from the award-winning Atlas of Anatomy, which are also available online
Textboxes and sidebars throughout each chapter provide meaningful examples and a context for applying concepts
Didactic features, including learning objectives, key terms and concepts, review questions, and summaries, assist educators and students in consolidating learning
This core textbook is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students in communication sciences and disorders. The connection between basic and clinical science enables students to maximize learning and apply this new knowledge during clinical placements and externships.
