BM1051 - Anatomy and Physiology for Speech Pathology 1
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)
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 bones, muscles and joints. A detailed study of the
gross anatomical structure and function of the thorax will then be undertaken. The
anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems together with
the musculoskeletal anatomy of the thorax will be studied. Lastly, a detailed study
of the topographical anatomy of the head and neck will be carried out as required
for students studying speech pathology, with emphasis on the structures involved in
speech. An integrated understanding of the human body will be achieved with practical
sessions, including the study of human cadaveric material, always emphasizing the
importance of correlating structure to function.
- To discuss the relationship between the organisational levels of the human body from
the cellular to the organ level;
- To identify and describe the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the
musculoskeletal and nervous systems;
- To identify and describe the structure of the head & neck and the vertebral column;
- To critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to a human bioscience discipline.
