ANATOMY AND NEUROPHYSIOLOGY FOR SPEECH AND SWALLOWING

HBS2ANS

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will explore 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

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.
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.
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.
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.
