Aphasia and related neurogenic language disorders by La pu yi te( Book )

37 editions published between 1990 and 2020 in English and Chinese and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now thoroughly updated, this new edition builds on the classic first edition to provide complete coverage of aphasia and related neurogenic language disorders. For the first time, the larger psychological aspects of neurogenic language conditions are examined, including adaptation to chronicity, treatment of accompanying mood disorders, and the role of both the family and clinician in improving patient care
Movement disorders in neurologic disease : effects on communication and swallowing by Leonard L LaPointe( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Movement Disorders in Neurologic Disease: Effects on Communication and Swallowing addresses a wide range of medical disorders that involve disturbances of muscle tone and muscle control, including Parkinson disease, ataxia, spasmodic dysphonia, and Huntington disease. These conditions can impact the motor control systems and often affect the linguistic and cognitive systems. For each disorder, the book provides an overview, signs and symptoms, associated genetics, effects on communication and swallowing, risk and protective factors, treatment decision-making, and more. The authors also offer valuable insights into these conditions to encourage a level of understanding that will ensure multidisciplinary, professional communication as well as planning and implementation of efficient intervention strategies. Supported by numerous graphs, figures, clinical photographs, and case studies, this unique book is an essential source for practitioners and researchers in the field of neurogenic speech and swallowing disorders."--Back cover
Paul Broca and the origins of language in the brain by Leonard L LaPointe( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Paul Broca was a child prodigy. He fulfilled his promise by becoming a brilliant neurologist, surgeon, and anthropologist. Perhaps his most lasting contribution to neuroscience was his proposal that the third frontal convolution of the left cerebral hemisphere of the brain is the seat of that most human attribute, the production of articulate speech and language. This notion was advanced by detailing the autopsy findings, with quite evident and circumscribed lesions, in the brains of his two now famous cases, Leborgne (known as "Tan," for that is all he could say) and Lelong. Broca's presentations were milestones in the history of the neuroscience of language and the brain, but they were only more defined echoes of ideas that had preceded him. Undergraduate and graduate students as well as practicing professionals and clinicians in psychology, neurolinguistics, cognitive psychology, communication science and disorders, neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychiatry, nursing and health-related professions, and philosophy of science will be interested in this book. It is different from others like it in that it presents aspects of the personal lives of these French brains who sparked the notion of a place in the brain for human language. It embraces a more empathic and humanistic approach to understanding people and their disorders as well as to what may drive the process of science and patients as "specimens."
