Neurotoxicology provides a thorough understanding of neurotoxicology through its integration of multilateral ideas covering several disciplines, including chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, and pathology. It discusses neurotoxic agents, describes the methods for studying neurotoxic actions, covers factors affecting neurotoxicity, and includes the diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.

Neurotoxicology is an excellent reference for graduate and medical students, researchers in neurotoxicology, regulatory toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and anyone who needs to understand the adverse affects of neurotoxic agents on the nervous system.
