Anatomy & Physiology for Speech, Language, and Hearing, Fifth Edition, provides a solid foundation in anatomical and physiological principles relevant to communication sciences and disorders. Ideal for speech-language pathology and audiology students, as well as practicing clinicians, the text 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, 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. Thoroughly updated to reflect current trends, techniques, and best practices, the Fifth Edition of this acclaimed text is supported by innovative Anatesse learning software—now accessible online via PC, Mac, and tablet devices—featuring tutorials, interactive quizzes, and other resources to help students of all learning styles master the material and prepare for professional licensing exams.

About the Authors
J. Anthony Seikel, Ph.D.
- Completely revised physiology of swallowing now includes updated views of infant development, the stages of swallowing, and neurophysiological underpinnings of the process.
- A broadened discussion of the instrumentation associated with all the systems of communication conveys the richness of the research within the fields.
- New research covering the very latest industry trends and technology is highlighted through revised sections covering articulatory and auditory physiology, along with new and expanded content on the effects of aging, neuroimaging, and the DIVA model.
- Many new images have been added, encouraging 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 applications for students.
- Fully revised ANATESSE software is now platform neutral and internet-based, providing on-the-go learning, with new labs, simulations, and updates to content. Anatesse now offers gradebook functionality with reporting for student scores and time spent on task. Experience the classic systems three dimensionally with animations that explore the important processes of hearing, phonation, respiration, swallowing, and more.
J. Anthony (Tony) Seikel, Ph.D., is professor of communication sciences and disorders at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho. His research interests center on the relationship of pathology to acoustics and perception, as well as improving pedagogy through technology. He has recently been studying the relationship between oromyofunctional disorders and oropharyngeal dysphagia. He earned his B.S. in Speech and Hearing from Phillips University, his M.A. in Speech Pathology from Wichita State University, and a Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Science from the University of Kansas.
Douglas W. King, Ph.D.
Douglas W. King, Ph.D., was a professor within the basic medical program at Washington State University until his death in 2001. He was greatly loved by his students and fellow faculty, and had set up a scholarship program in anatomy for students with diabetes.
David G. Drumright, B.S.
David G. Drumright is a programmer and teacher in Spokane, Washington. He has taught electronics at numerous schools and has a background in speech-language pathology and audiology. His software includes the original ANIMA programs of this text, the new ANATESSE application, AUDIN software for audiology instruction, and several other instructional tools.
"The content of these chapters is theoretically sound and accurate. The material is thorough and very up to date. The material has considerable depth. The chapters are very thorough. The chapters have been updated to reflect recent technology (e.g. use of neuroimaging, use of ultrasound). The chapters have also been updated to reflect recent research. The text is very rich with elements to break up the material and provide multidimensional learning opportunities. In addition to the outlines and study guides, there are margin definitions/pointers and inset information boxes, Anatesse lessons."
