Some data suggest that exposure to DDT and fumigants may be associated with permanent decline in neurobehavioral functioning and increase in psychiatric symptoms, but, due to the limited number of studies available and the(More)
The aim of this study was to elucidate the site and detailed nature of peripheral nerve damage induced in the rat by chronic CS2 inhalation exposure in the light of the relationship between pathological and neurophysiological data. Adult male rats were exposed to 700 ppm of CS2 2 h/d, 5 d/week for 12 weeks and then followed-up for 18 weeks. The first(More)
This article reviews the biological indicators available for monitoring human neurotoxicity by exogenous chemicals with reference to the phases in which the neurotoxic process takes place, namely delivery, receptor-linkage, and toxicodynamic phase. Among the delivery phase tests, indicators are available for metals (lead, mercury) and some organic(More)
