This course is designed to give students a basic understanding of the structural organization (anatomy), function (physiology), and neural control for speech production and hearing. The course will emphasize both normal and disordered systems. Study of the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology underlying normal speech, language, and hearing. Study of central and peripheral nervous systems, along with consideration of embryologic development.
3. Expose you to a representative sample of recent research on the neural bases of three large-scale components of speech/language:
