The stimulus for scripting this e-book arose from the author's notion of an absence of obtainable texts which effectively combine the topics of neuroanatomy and sensible neurology with the perform of speech­ language pathology. This belief used to be received from virtually twenty years of training within the parts of neuroanatomy and purchased neuro­ logical speech-language issues to speech pathology scholars at the start on the South Australian collage of complex schooling and, for the earlier 5 years, on the collage of Queensland. even supposing a plethora of fine texts committed particularly to every of the topics of neuroanatomy, neurology and aphasiology were released, few have attemped to combine those person topic components in any such means as to supply a extra transparent figuring out of the neurological bases of clinically well-known varieties of aphasia and motor speech issues. In scripting this textual content, i've got tried to supply a greater stability among neuroanatomy-neurology and. speech-language pathology. correct parts of neuroanatomy and neurology are brought and mentioned within the context of particular speech and language problems. during this method, i've got aimed toward supplying a greater hyperlink among the suitable neuroanatomical and neurological wisdom at the one hand, and particular neurologically dependent communique problems at the different, that allows you to improve the reader's realizing of the origins, path and analysis of those problems. after all the writing of any ebook calls for the aid and encouragement of alternative humans. this article used to be no exception.

Example text

2 The spinal nerves As mentioned previously, each of the 31 pairs of spinal nerves is formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral nerve roots which emerge from each segment of the spinal cord. Once formed in this manner, each spinal nerve leaves the vertebral canal through its intravertebral foramen (opening) and ends soon after by dividing into a dorsal ramus (branch) and ventral ramus. The dorsal rami of the spinal nerves segmentally supply the deep back muscles and the skin of the posterior aspect of the head, neck and trunk.

Some nerve fibres are associated with the structures of the body wall or extremities, such as skeletal muscles, skin, bones and joints. These fibres are called somatic fibres and may of course be either sensory or motor. Other nerve fibres, which may also be either sensory or motor, are more closely associated with the internal organs such as the smooth muscles found in the gastrointestinal tract and blood vessels, etc. These fibres are referred to as visceral fibres. The nerves of the peripheral nervous system are made up of bundles of individual nerve fibres.

THE MEDULLA OBLONGATA The medulla oblongata is continuous with the upper portion of the spinal cord and forms the most caudal portion of the brainstem. It lies above the level of the foramen magnum and extends upwards to the lower portion of the pons. The medulla is composed mainly of white fibre tracts. Among these tracts are scattered nuclei that either serve as controlling centres for various activities or contain the cell bodies of some cranial nerve fibres. The central nervous system 25 On the ventral surface of the medulla in the mid-line is the anterior median fissure.
