Paper will discuss chemical substances sometimes found in electronic products that get bad press, but for which there is not always sound toxicological science that should require bans at levels used. Expand
Selective Vulnerability in the Nervous System
There are a number of factors that give rise to the selective vulnerability of the nervous system to toxic insult. This chapter attempts to give an overview to allow the reader to better understandExpand
