About The Book

There can be little doubt that the huge developments in brain imaging technology over the past 15 years have opened up a whole new vista of possibilities for the assessment and treatment of human communication disorders. At issue of course is whether those possibilities are being realized and what form of influence this will have on the field speech-language pathology and hearing disorders in the immediate future. The rate of development in neuroimaging is so rapid that it is almost impossible to predict very far into the future in trying to understand this influence. Nonetheless, it is now becoming clear that the availability of technologies that make it possible to investigate, even in real time, the neural regions and systems that are functionally related disorders is having a transforming impact on the discipline. In this series we have brought together some of the principal researchers in our discipline and who are working at the “cutting edge” in applying neuroimaging to communication disorders.

About The Author

Roger J. Ingham is Professor of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was born in Australia and received his BSc and PhD in psychology (1972) from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. In 1982 he was awarded the Order of Australia for contributions to Speech-Language Pathology higher education in Australia. He has published 3 books and more than 170 papers, principally on developmental stuttering and is one of the most cited researchers investigating this disorder. His research has focused on the development and evaluation of stuttering treatments, the measurement of stuttering, and the neurology of stuttering. In 2005 he was awarded the Honors of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research Editor’s Award. He is the recipient of several federally funded research grants for investigating stuttering treatment and the neurology of stuttering. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Research Imaging Center at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where, in collaboration with Drs. Peter Fox and Janis Costello Ingham, he has developed a program of research on developmental stuttering using brain imaging techniques including PET, event-related fMRI, MEG and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Currently he is the PI for an NIH grant investigating the interaction between neural systems change and stuttering treatment.
