Summary

A comprehensive textbook on the neurological bases of human communication, this book includes a substantive overview of speech, cognitive-linguistic, and auditory systems. A range of topics are covered that influence human communication and, subsequently, communication disorders, due to a breakdown within certain neurological substrates involving the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS). Logically organized the content covers topics ranging from: basic overview of terminology used in neurology and communication disorders; neuro-embryology and neuro-developmental mechanisms and milestones; teratogens affecting communication; neuroanatomy and neurophysiology especially of the speech, cognitive-linguistic, and hearing mechanisms; the somatosensory system; the motor system at cortical Upper Motor Neuron levels, subcortical, cerebellar, brainstem and other Lower Motor Neuron systems; the limbic system; special sensory systems such as hearing and vision, to name some. Neurological Bases of Speech, Language and Hearing provides a comprehensive review of the underlying neurological substrates and neuropathologies that affect communication processes. A problem-based approach is utilized to assist individuals in learning the material as well as developing critical thinking skills needed to differentially diagnosis various communication disorders and neuropathologies.
