By B. E. Murdoch

The stimulus for penning this booklet arose from the author's notion of a scarcity of obtainable texts which competently combine the topics of neuroanatomy and practical neurology with the perform of speech­ language pathology. This notion used to be won from virtually 20 years of educating within the parts of neuroanatomy and purchased neuro­ logical speech-language issues to speech pathology scholars in the beginning on the South Australian university of complicated schooling and, for the prior 5 years, on the collage of Queensland. even if a plethora of fine texts dedicated particularly to every of the topics of neuroanatomy, neurology and aphasiology were released, few have attemped to combine those person topic parts in this type of means as to supply a extra transparent realizing of the neurological bases of clinically famous kinds of aphasia and motor speech issues. In scripting this textual content, i've got tried to supply a greater stability among neuroanatomy-neurology and. speech-language pathology. proper components of neuroanatomy and neurology are brought and mentioned within the context of particular speech and language issues. during this manner, i've got aimed toward supplying a greater hyperlink among the proper neuroanatomical and neurological wisdom at the one hand, and particular neurologically dependent verbal exchange problems at the different, as a way to improve the reader's knowing of the origins, path and diagnosis of those problems. after all the writing of any e-book calls for the aid and encouragement of alternative humans. this article was once no exception.

2 Venous blood supply The brain is drained by two sets of veins, both of which empty into the dural venous sinuses which, in turn, empty into the internal jugular veins. These two sets of veins are known as the deep or great cerebral veins and the superficial cerebral veins. Before dealing with each of these, however, it is necessary to have an understanding of the dural venous sinuses. The major dural venous sinuses include the superior sagittal sinus, which runs along the superior portion of the longitudinal fissure at the junction of the falx cerebri and the cranial dura and the inferior sagittal sinus, which runs deep within the longitudinal fissure along the deep margin of the falx cerebri.

On the ventral surface of the brainstem they join to form a single arterial stem, the basilar artery. 19 The Circle of Willis. posterior cerebral arteries. Each of these is joined to the corresponding internal carotid artery by a communicating branch (posterior communicating arteries). This forms what is known as the Circle of Willis, Le. 19). Although the Circle o(Willis provides a link between the major arteries that supply the brain, under normal conditions there is little exchange of blood between the main arteries through the slender anterior and posterior communicating arteries, since the arterial pressure in the internal carotid arteries is similar to that in the basilar artery.
