New York/Stuttgart – “Atlas of Neuroanatomy for Communication Science and Disorders,” recently published by Thieme, gives students a complete understanding of the basic anatomy and physiology of human communication, the neural mechanisms controlling speech, language, cognition and swallowing functions, and the anatomic underpinnings of speech/language disorders of the nervous system and related communication impairments. Edited by Dr. Leonard L. LaPointe, one of today’s foremost teachers and practitioners in the field of speech-language pathology, this book offers a wealth of high-yield information for use in the classroom, exam preparation, and course review.
"For students with a primary interest in communication and its disorders, the first encounter with neuroanatomy is rarely enjoyable, and its relevance may not be readily apparent. For communication scientists, speech-language pathologists, and those in related research and clinical disciplines, knowing neuroanatomy can be fundamental and essential for day-to-day work. These realities make having a focused, user-friendly tool for learning an important commodity. This book more than meets that standard.” Joseph R. Duffy, Ph.D., Professor and Division Head, Speech Pathology, Department of Neurology, Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota (from the Foreword).
This book includes online access via scratch-off code to Thieme’s collection of anatomy images on WinkingSkull.com PLUS, featuring nearly 600 full-color illustrations and timed self-tests with immediate feedback to help identify areas for further study.
