Edited By Hugh A. Tilson, L.M.W. Kornet Copyright 1998

    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.
