ANATOMY AND NEUROPHYSIOLOGY FOR SPEECH AND SWALLOWING

HBS2ANS

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will develop an understanding of the functional anatomy and neurosciences relevant to speech and swallowing and the role of the central and peripheral nervous system in sensory and motor function.  The concepts of human structure and function introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB will be applied to the head and neck, respiratory and nervous systems. Emphasis will be placed on developing students' abilities to predict the effects of impaired structure and function. This subject will provide students with foundation knowledge to assist in clinical reasoning, practice and consultation in speech pathology.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the head and neck, including its role in speech, swallowing and hearing.

Activities:
Students will; i) independently study texts and assigned on-line content, ii) complete Study Guide activities, iii) contribute to collaborative workshop & on-line discussions, iv) participate in enquiry based learning to develop an ability to synthesize & act on information from a range of sources.

02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems in the thoracic region, including its role in respiration and speech.

Activities:
Students will; i) independently study texts and assigned on-line content, ii) complete Study Guide activities, iii) contribute to collaborative workshop & on-line discussions, iv) participate in enquiry based learning, to develop an ability to synthesize and act on information from a range of sources.

03. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the nervous system, including its role in sensory and motor communication specifically to the body systems involved in speech, swallowing, vision, hearing & breathing.

Activities:
By engaging in study guide activities, ongoing collaborative discussions and participate in enquiry based learning case histories, the students# capabilities of critical thinking and analytical skills will be developed. The student will be able to adapt fundamental knowledge and skills in a range of contexts.

04. Practice observational and communication skills, including application of appropriate medical terminology, to make accurate observations of anatomical structures or events and infer their relationship to function in a laboratory environment.

Activities:
Based on information provided in lectorials and workshops, and reviewing recommended texts, students will complete their subject Study Guide. This manual will support reverse teaching in the laboratory environment. Students will examine anatomical structures and demonstrate an understanding of the relationship to function using cadaveric material, the living body, models or medical imaging.
