Neuroscience Fundamentals for Communication Sciences and Disorders, Second Edition is a comprehensive textbook primarily designed for undergraduate neural bases or graduate neuroscience courses in communication sciences and disorders programs (CSD). The text can also be used as an accessible go-to reference for speech-language pathology and audiology clinical professionals practicing in medical and rehab settings. Written with an engaging and conversational style, the author uses humor and analogies to explain concepts that are often challenging for students. Complemented by more than 400 visually rich and beautifully drawn full-color illustrations, the book emphasizes brain and behavior relationships while also ensuring coverage of essential neuroanatomy and neurophysiology in an integrative fashion. With a comprehensive background in the principles, processes, and structures underlying the workings of the human nervous system, students and practitioners alike will be able to better understand and apply brain-behavior relationships to make appropriate clinical assessments and treatment decisions. Extending well beyond traditional neuroanatomy-based textbooks, this resource is designed to satisfy three major goals: Provide neuroanatomical and neurophysiological detail that meets the real-world needs of the contemporary CSD student as they move forward toward clinical practice and into the future where advancements in the field of health and brain sciences are accelerating and contributing more and more each day to all areas of rehabilitation. Provide clear, understandable explanations and intuitive material that explains how and why neuroanatomical systems, processes, and mechanisms of the nervous system operate as they do during human behavior. Provide a depth and scope of material that will allow the reader to better understand and appreciate a wide range of evidence-based literature related to behavior, cognition, emotion, language, and sensory perception—areas that all directly impact treatment decisions. New to the Second Edition: * 40 new full-color illustrations * Reorganization and division of content from Chapters 4, 5, and 6 of the previous edition, into six new and more digestible chapters * A new standalone chapter on the cranial nerves * Addition of a major section and discussion on the neural bases of swallowing * Addition of more summary tables and process flowcharts to simplify the text and provide ready-made study materials for students * Revisions to most figures to improve their clarity and coherence with the written material Disclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such as documents, audio, and video, etc.) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book.

Cleft Palate Speech and Resonance: An Audio and Video Resource is a clinical tool to train students and clinicians to reliably identify articulation, resonance, nasal air emission, and voice aspects of cleft palate speech. The resource contains high-quality audio and video recordings of speech samples and case studies that represent a variety of speech symptoms associated with cleft palate. In addition, it includes a brief overview of the velopharyngeal mechanism and a protocol for the clinical assessment of patients with cleft-related speech disorders. All information presented is evidence based and reflects the most current knowledge on cleft palate speech. Assessment and treatment concepts in cleft care have changed significantly over the past 25 years. Speech-language pathologists need easy access to new information and state-of-the-art resources that explicitly deal with cleft care. Because children with cleft lip and palate constitute a low-incidence population, many practitioners have limited academic or clinical training in this area. The goal of this resource is to improve the knowledge base and clinical skills of practitioners by presenting current information through a range of auditory-perceptual experiences. Key Features: * Case studies with an extensive array of audio and video samples of recorded speech disorders produced by individuals with cleft palate * Addresses both knowledge and skills by presenting a wide range of auditory-perceptual experiences and content knowledge that will help students and clinicians identify the variety of speech disorders in cleft palate and the methods by which to assess them * The speech samples reflect current thinking and it contain 101 high-quality digital speech samples and cases - more than any other current text * Provides the reader with concise yet complete descriptions of the speech features associated with cleft palate and a systematic approach to assessing speech, resonance, and phonation * Presents opportunities for independent practice in listening and analyzing a variety of communication disorders and complexity and comparing perceptual findings with the authors For instructors of speech-language pathology, Cleft Palate Speech and Resonance provides a much-needed teaching resource that is necessary to understanding and identifying speech disorders in speakers with cleft palate. Practicing speech-language pathologists can use it to retool their skills and it is also a great resource for dental and medical students and residents as well as those practitioners who already serve a cleft palate team.
