Speech-Language Pathology is the second edition of Basic Anatomy and Physiology in Speech and Hearing, first published in 1984. This new edition serves as a general introductory text, primarily for undergraduates. Its goal is to bridge the gap between the anatomy and physiology (mechanism and function) and the clinical practice (treatment and habilitation) of speech. It concentrates on fundamentals, and thus also serves as a reference for therapists in the public school setting. This edition includes expanded clinical considerations and references, with the addition of a "self-examination" section at the end of each chapter. This text primarily appeals to college undergraduates in speech-language pathology and audiology courses. It is also appropriate for courses which include an overview of anatomy and physiology, and the clinical impact of speech, hearing, and language disorders. *The subject matter in this text has been arranged to facilitate reading concomitant with lecture and reference use; After the first chapter, the others are arranged in four basic sections: * Anatomy (skeletal and muscular systems, presented in outline form) * Clinical considerations of physiology (function of the skeletal and muscular systems) * Glossary of terms (supplementary to those used in the previous two sections) * References (presentation of a variety of texts and journals, and citations from major contributions to speech, language, and hearing literature

In this innovative, short, new textbook, Rod Langman offers a conceptual framework within which students can understand the evolution of the immune system. Evolutionary selection for resistance to infectious disease is shown to be the driving force that has shaped the immune system into a remarkably effective and efficient system of defense. In the midst of the current information explosion in immunological science, when many students are under the impression that the immune system is almost too complex to understand as a whole, The Immune System can be used alone as a text for an introductory course or used in conjunction with any of the several descriptive texts already on the market.

The receptor concept was one of the most influential ideas in 20th-century medicine because it could account for the highly specific effects of drugs on the body. This book is the first to provide an historical discussion of its origin, development, slow acceptance into pharmacology and subsequent impact on modern medicine. It also considers the social context that influenced the drug receptor's development., making a valuable contribution to the history and understanding of modern medicine.
