BM1051 - Anatomy and Physiology for Speech Pathology 1
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
This subject will provide an overview of body organisation and introduce important
concepts and principles of anatomy and physiology as relevant for speech pathology
students. This includes an introduction to cells and tissues, the nervous system and
the function and relationships of bone, muscle and joints. A detailed study of the
gross anatomy of the head and neck will be undertaken, with a particular emphasis
on those structures relevant to speech pathology. An integrated understanding of the
human body will be achieved with practical sessions, including the study of human
cadaveric material, and functional and clinical case-studies to facilitate the integration
of material and the correlation of structure to function.
- Discuss the relationship between the organisational levels of the human body from
the cellular to the organ level;
- Identify and describe the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the musculoskeletal
and nervous systems;
- Identify and describe the structure of the head & neck and the vertebral column;
- Critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to a human bioscience discipline.
