Preclinical Speech Science: Anatomy, Physiology, Acoustics, Perception, now in its second edition, is the text of choice for undergraduate and graduate courses in speech science. Written in a user-friendly style by three distinguished scientists/editors/clinicians who have taught the course to thousands of students at premier educational programs, the text comprehensively covers anatomy, physiology, acoustics, perception, and swallowing. This book helps speech-language pathologists in training understand the science that underpins their work and provides a framework for the evaluation and management of their future clients. It provides all that instructors need to ensure that their students are fully ready for their clinical practicum training.. Describes scientific principles explicitly and in translational terms that emphasize their relevance to clinical practice. Features original, full-color illustrations and artwork designed to be instructive learning tools. Includes clinical scenarios woven into the text to emphasize the relevance of the concepts presented and focus the discussion on humanistic values. Incorporates analogies that aid thinking about processes from different perspectives. Features "sidetracks" that relate interesting historical and contemporary facts to the discipline of speech science. Provides a framework for conceptualizing the uses, subsystems, and levels of observation of speech production, speech, and swallowing. Includes material that is ideal for preparing both undergraduate and graduate for clinical study. The second edition of Preclinical Speech Science includes updates of existing chapters, plus a comprehensive, detailed new chapter titled "Brain Structures and Mechanisms for Speech, Language, and Hearing." As in the first edition chapters, this new chapter contains beautifully drawn, full- color, detailed artwork to facilitate the task of learning nervous system structures and physiology. The chap

Thomas J. Hixon received his Ph.D. in speech pathology and audiology from the University of Iowa and did postdoctoral work in respiratory physiology and biomechanics at Harvard University. He is Professor of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, Director of the National Center for Neurogenic Communication Disorders, and Dean of the Graduate College Emeritus at the University of Arizona. Hixon is a fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, holds its Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology, and has received the Honors of the Association. He has been Editor of the Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, Editor for the Speech Section of the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, and an Editorial Reviewer and/or Associate Editor to over a dozen speech and voice journals. Hixons research interests center on normal and abnormal speaking and singing. He has published and lectured widely on respiratory function in singing and is recognized for his seminal research on the topic. His two most recent books, Respiratory function in speech and song (with collaborators) and Evaluation and management of speech breathing disorders: Principles and methods (with Jeannette D. Hoit) document the breadth of his research and clinical interests in singing (and acting). Hixon has made presentations, given workshops, and/or conducted research at the Julliard School, the Manhattan School of Music, the Voice Foundation, the National Association of Teachers of Singing, the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology, the British Voice Association, the Canadian Voice Care Foundation, the Australian National Association of Teachers of Singing, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and the Grand Ole Opry. He has also done research on acting that has included the study of members of the Royal Shakespeare Company of London.
