Introduction to Neurobehavioral Toxicology: Food and Environment examines the effects of chemicals on the central and peripheral nervous system and the subsequent changes in behavior, with a focus on the toxicity of food components and behavioral effects of environmental toxicants. Topics addressed include acute and chronic effects; reversible and irreversible consequences; functional disorders of the nervous system; neurobehavioral dysfunctions; and the underlying neurobiological mechanisms.


"The contributors are well-recognized experts in their fields. The book also has an extensive glossary, a descriptive table of neuropsychological tests, a two-page list of abbreviations, and an index… timely, well-balanced reviews and commentary… The overview in this section (Chapter 11) is thorough and well organized."
