Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Christine Sapienza, PhD, CCC-SLP (University of Florida)
Description: This book provides information and reference to neuroanatomical and neuroscientific issues related to communication science and communication disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a usable neuroscience textbook for a one-semester course for undergraduate and graduate students majoring in communication sciences. This is a necessary book for both graduate and undergraduate education. It meets the author's objectives.
Audience: It is written for undergraduate and graduate students in communication sciences and/or communication sciences and disorders.
Features: The book covers the fundamental neuroanatomical substrates involved in sensory and motor control. There is attention to the areas of language organization and the central and peripheral processes involved in speech production. There are no innovative techniques or strategies adopted by the author for the presentation of the material, yet it is conveyed in a well organized, well thought out design that will take a student from the fundamental issues of neuroanatomy through the functional consequences of neuroanatomical/ neurophysiological disease. At the end of each chapter the author provides a study guide for the student which includes short essay and multiple choice questions. The only drawback to the book is the illustrations; they are simplistically done.
Assessment: This book is a worthy resource for those teaching an undergraduate course in neuroanatomy. It is a very uncomplicated book for the student to read and enjoy and will make a contribution to thefield of speech-language pathology as a primary or complementary book for a neuroanatomy course. It compares very well to other commonly used neuroanatomy textbooks geared for programs in speech-language pathology or medicine.
This neuroscience textbook, written especially for students in communications sciences, will also be useful for practicing clinicians. Assuming no background in biology and chemistry, it covers the fundamentals of the brain's structure and organization and the anatomy of nerve cells. Chapters in sections on balance/hearing and speech/language detail the vestibular system, the central auditory system, and language organization. The text is amply illustrated with b&w diagrams, and includes chapter study guides and summaries. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
