Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ann Marie Cimino, MA (University of Florida)
Description: This book contains two sections. The first section of the book is on basic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. In the second section of the book the signs and symptoms of a variety of neurologic disorders are detailed. At the beginning of each chapter is a concise outline of the contents. This provides an excellent procedure for note-taking on the material covered and allows the reader to easily find pertinent information.
Purpose: This text is meant to serve as a quick reference guide to basic neurology and neurological disorders for speech pathologists who are new to the field of medical speech pathology and neurogenic communication disorders. There are concise definitions and clear illustrations, which are necessary for a basic understanding of neurological function.
Audience: While this book was written with the beginning speech pathologist in mind, it is my opinion that the text is useful both as an introduction to neuroanatomy and neurology, as well as a supplemental text for a course in speech neuroanatomy.
Features: The content includes basic neuroanatomy of the central and peripheral nervous systems, an introduction to neurophysiology and neurotransmission mechanisms, an overview of the localization of neurologic signs and symptoms, and an explanation of neurologic examination and diagnostic testing. The author has also chosen to introduce several disorders that are usually of particular relevance to speech pathologists. The author denotes the symptoms and pathology of each disorder and discusses the aberrant speech characteristics that may be encountered with the presence of each disorder.
Assessment: This is an excellent handbook and guide that would be of benefit to the medical speech pathologist. It also may serve as an excellent introduction to the field of neurogenic communication disorders for the student interested in pursuing this field of study.

Aronson, a senior consultant in medical speech-language pathology, Mayo Clinic, designed this book for speech-language pathologists who practice in medical settings and who are responsible for the diagnosis of dysarthrias, apraxia of speech, and aphasia, but need a refresher course on the nervous system. The two-part presentation includes basic neuroscience, and descriptions of specific neurological diseases with speech, voice, and language implications. Each chapter is outlined for easy reference, and many include summarized lists, or easily accessed charts for quick review. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
