SIG 13 Perspectives on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia), July 1999, Vol. 8, 18. doi:10.1044/sasd8.2.18
The newest volume in the Singular Dysphagia Series, this text further refines the study of neurology and neuroscience to illuminate normal and disordered swallowing. It is a richly referenced technical manual that enables the reader to dissect normal and disordered swallowing down to the cellular level.
The first chapter serves as a summary, which helps the reader prepare for the technical specificity provided by subsequent chapters. The swallow is then examined in detail, including sensory and motor components, reflexes, and developmental considerations.
A wealth of drawings and models allow the reader to assimilate the complexities of swallowing function. Each chapter also is summarized in detail, integrating the specific detail from the chapter into a functional whole.
