Now in its fourth edition, ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY FOR SPEECH, LANGUAGE AND HEARING remains a highly acclaimed tool for instilling a solid foundation in the anatomical and physiological principles that pertain to the communication sciences and disorders disciplines. Updated to reflect the most current trends in the field, the book integrates clinical information with everyday experiences to underscore the relevance of anatomy and physiology to the speech, language, and hearing systems. Its effectiveness is enhanced with innovative student practice software which provides multiple tutorial and quizzing sections and provides students with the final resources needed to master the book’s content no matter their learning style.
New to this Edition
- All 300 plus anatomical images have been re-drawn in full color, offering a clear and accurate understanding of the classical framework of the speech, language, and hearing systems.
- New student practice StudyWARE software includes self-quizzes and learning activities such as image labeling, crossword puzzles, matching, multiple choice, flash cards, and fill in the blanks. Fully revised ANATESSE software is easier to use and incorporates new labs, simulations, and updates to content.
- Experience the classic systems three dimensionally with animations that explore the important processes of hearing, phonation, respiration, swallowing, and more.
- Offers the very latest industry trends and technology through revised sections covering articulatory and auditory physiology along with new and expanded content on the effects of aging, neuroimaging, and the DIVA model.

About the Author
J. Anthony (Tony) Seikel is on faculty at Idaho State University
in Pocatello, Idaho. His research interests center on the relationship of pathology
to acoustics and perception, but extend as well to the improvement of pedagogy
Douglas W. King was a professor within the Basic Medical program at Washington State University until the time of his death in 2001. He was greatly loved by his students and fellow faculty, and had set up a scholarship program in anatomy for students with diabetes.
David G. Drumright is a programmer and teacher in Spokane, Washington. He has taught electronics at numerous schools, and has a background in speech-language pathology and audiology. His software includes the original ANIMA programs of this text; the new ANATESSE application that you see in this fourth edition; AUDIN, which is software for instruction in audiology; and numerous smaller instructional tools.
