Neuroscience for the Study of Communicative Disorders, Fourth Edition remains an ideal resource that teaches neuroscience fundamentals without encyclopedic details of anatomy and physiology. This text takes a step-by-step, simplified approach, and contains relevant information in its application of neuroscience for students and practitioners in speech-language pathology and audiology--making it the perfect text! Completely updated throughout, the Fourth Edition reflects the most recent findings and clinical applications.

Each chapter in Bhatnagar, after the introductory neuroanatomy chapters (1-3), follows the same logical step-by-step building structure:

  • Learning Objectives
  • Chapter Introduction
  • Anatomy and Terminology by structure
  • Clinical Concerns with neurologic concepts including pathology
  • Clinical Application
The Fourth Edition will also contain the following improvements:
  • Significantly updating the current illustrations with 50 newly drawn replacement drawings to further enhance the visual appeal of the text
  • Addition of MRI images to Chapter 3 to create a more valuable atlas section
  • Additional Clinical Considerations case studies which will also include more treatment examples and mental function cases as well as a new feature called Clinical Relevance boxes
