Neural Bases of Speech and Hearing provides one of the more challenging basic science courses for senior undergraduates and first year graduate students. The volume and complexity of material required to gain a rudimentary knowledge of the operation of the nervous system tends to drive this course solidly into the “memorization model.” Knowledge of structure is concrete and objective, while comprehension of the interactions is more difficult to teach, much less to assess.
The following is an annotated syllabus for a course in Neural Bases of Speech and Hearing that attempts to strengthen physiology without compromise to anatomy. Further, specific steps outlined below provide the student with an opportunity to integrate the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology into clinical work. The course is designed for second semester undergraduate seniors and students entering our graduate program who come to the profession with degrees from disciplines other than speech-language pathology.
