The stimulus for penning this ebook arose from the author's conception of a scarcity of obtainable texts which effectively combine the themes of neuroanatomy and practical neurology with the perform of speech­ language pathology. This notion was once won from nearly 20 years of training within the parts of neuroanatomy and purchased neuro­ logical speech-language issues to speech pathology scholars at first on the South Australian collage of complex schooling and, for the previous 5 years, on the college of Queensland. even supposing a plethora of fine texts dedicated in particular to every of the topics of neuroanatomy, neurology and aphasiology were released, few have attemped to combine those person topic parts in this type of method as to supply a extra transparent figuring out of the neurological bases of clinically famous kinds 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. proper parts of neuroanatomy and neurology are brought and mentioned within the context of particular speech and language problems. during this manner, i've got aimed toward delivering a greater hyperlink among the proper neuroanatomical and neurological wisdom at the one hand, and particular neurologically dependent conversation problems at the different, with a purpose to improve the reader's knowing of the origins, path and diagnosis of those problems. in fact the writing of any publication calls for the aid and encouragement of alternative humans. this article used to be no exception.

Sample text

Many parts of the autonomic nervous system are able to function on a spinal basis. However, the activity of the autonomic nervous system is normally under the control of centres located in the medulla oblongata and hypothalamus. 3 THE VENTRICULAR SYSTEM The ventricular system is a series of cavities within the brain which contain a fluid known as cerebrospinal fluid. These cavities develop from the canal within the cranial portion of the neural tube as the latter structure develops into the brain.

These anastomoses (an anastomosis is a connection between two tubular organs), however, are frequently inadequate, especially in the elderly where the communicating arteries may be narrowed by vascular disease (atherosclerosis). Unfortunately the Circle of Willis and its immediate branches are also common sites for aneurysms (sacs in blood vessel walls). 20 Lateral view of the left cerebral hemisphere showing the distribution of the major cerebral arteries. 20. The middle cerebral artery, the largest branch of the internal carotid, travels laterally in the lateral fissure.

The veins that drain the brain stem and cerebellum also drain into the dural sinuses, some via the great cerebral vein. Although most of the venous blood coming from the brain eventually leaves the cranial cavity via the internal jugular veins, other exits from the cranial cavity also exist. Some dural sinuses connect with the veins superficial to the skull by emissary veins. For example, the cavernous sinus is connected with emissary veins, including the ophthalmic vein, which extends through the orbit.
