This new edition presents an integrated approach to neurotoxicology, the study of organismsa responses to changes in their environment and how interruption of the flow of information by chemical exposure causes a wide range of effects a from learning deficits, sensory disturbances in the extremities, and muscle weakness to seizures and signs similar to neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinsonas or Alzheimeras disease. It is an essential resource for understanding the sites and mechanisms of neurotoxicity, for formulating testable hypotheses about the effects of neurotoxicants, and for improving the risk assessment process.This is achieved either by co-transport or by conjugation of the transport moiety ( shown as a star in the diagram) onto the ...
