Molecular Neurotoxicology: Environmental Agents and Transcription-Transduction Coupling deals with changes in gene expression following exposure to neurotoxicants, as well as deciphering signal transduction or transcription coupling that is altered by the same exposure. Until now, little has been published on the topic in one reference, and toxicologists specialising in neurotoxicology, and also in metals toxicology and molecular biology will find not only the current state of the field described, but also a look to future developments.

Molecular Neurotoxicology: Environmental Agents and Transcription-Transduction Coupling explores the changes in gene expression that follow exposure to neurotoxicants, and deciphers signal transduction or transcription coupling that is altered by the same exposure. Renowned contributors from the fields of neuroscience and environmental toxicology address the role of specific transcription factor families in neurotoxicity, discuss models of neurodegeneration and the role of DNA repair in the nervous system, and reflect upon the impact of neurotoxicants on various cell signaling intermediates.
