Neuroscience Fundamentals for Communication Sciences and Disorders is a comprehensive textbook for undergraduate or graduate neuroscience courses in communication sciences and disorders programs. The goal of the textbook is to provide a thorough overview of the features, principles, processes, and structures underlying the working of the human nervous system. The textbook is designed to provide students with the neuroanatomical and physiological content relevant to CSD applications, and also content that places these features into the context of a behaving and communicative human.
An emphasis on fundamental information on anatomy, neurophysiological, and functional processes using a conversational writing style.
Beautifully illustrated with full-color anatomical and component figures, photographs, schematic line drawings, process flow-charts, and tables.
Three chapters on the neural bases of speech, language, and hearing help integrate the basic information from earlier chapters with findings specific to CSD.
Each chapter begins with an introduction and learning objectives and ends with review questions and a top ten summary list.
Bolded key terms throughout with a glossary of definitions for comprehension.
Clinical Importance Boxes highlight clinically relevant disorders and syndromes that compliment topic coverage.
Interesting Facts Boxes highlight interesting, fun, and quirky facts about the nervous systems structure, physiology, and functionality.
A PluralPlus companion website with PowerPoint lecture slides, instructional videos, and a sample syllabus for instructors, and interactive quizzes and flashcards for students.
Neuroscience Fundamentals for Communication Sciences and Disorders includes several chapters on broad topics related to brain and behavior relationships such as learning, skill acquisition, attention and memory, emotion, and neuroplasticity. These chapters go beyond typical neuroanatomy content to cover the large scale concepts that CSD students need to internalize to understand how humans learn, how and why we behave, and how these concepts apply to communication disorders. Such an understanding will deepen the student’s appreciation of the critical relevance of CSD in life and the importance of treatment to regain effective communication after disease, injury, or as a function of disorder.
Review “The primary strength of this text is in its detail and organization. A very complete, well-written text. Its scope includes explanations of the mechanisms of the brain underlying basic and skilled actions from cellular functions, anatomic structures and physiologic processes of the nervous system. With a solid background in neuroscience, students will be able to better understand brain-behavior relationships in order to make appropriate clinical assessment and treatment decisions. The relatable examples, with a touch of humor, makes the text very readable. Students should be able to relate to all analogies and this prevents the reader from getting too bogged down in detail as they attempt to understand complex concepts.” –Janis M. Jarecki-Liu, PhD, Professor, Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Clarion University of Pennsylvania”The author is very creative and the relatable, conversational style of this book is a definite strength. The author uses well placed, vivid analogies to explain concepts that can be quite challenging for students. The overall structure and organization of the book is also a strength as it uses a logical progression of the material.” –Irene M. Barrow, PhD, Professor, Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, James Madison University”This book is a great improvement over what I ve used in the past and other books available. It is well-written, has good and accurate figures, and accurate information.” –Margaret Lehman Blake, PhD, Associate Professor, Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of Houston
