From the Publisher
This clear and concise introduction to the neurology of speech and language mechanisms in children and adults has been updated to include flowcharts for the auditory system and the cerebellar pathways, new information on the embryological development of the nervous system, and new sections on pervasive developmental disorders and cognitive-linguistic disorders. Designed for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as the working speech-language pathologist, this text emphasizes the neurological mechanisms involved in communication disorders seen in clinical practice. This classic text will enable you to gain a better understanding of the neuroanatomy, neurology, and neuropsychology underlying a wide range of neurogenic communication disorders.
