Exploring the most current methods of exposure identification and analysis, this source
  • offers strategies to incorporate developmental neurotoxicity data into the risk assessment process
  • supplies techniques to enhance and strengthen exposure and endpoint testing and correctly approach data collection and utilization
  • compares animal and human endpoint assessments
  • discusses emerging issues such as endocrine disruptors and pesticides, and the application of neuroimaging techniques in neurotoxicological studies
  • includes a survey of alternative statistical methods to derive 'points of departure' for the development of exposure standards.
  • Summary

    This reference describes the most recent developments in the design, execution, and interpretation of human developmental neurotoxicology studies. Assessing critical issues and controversies in the field, this guide focuses on dose-response/effect relationships and explores challenges in the measurement of exposure to different types of chemicals, including selected metals, organic pollutants, pesticides, and recreational and therapeutic drugs.
