Dose-dependent bimodal effect of low-level lead exposure on the developing hippocampal region of the rat: a volumetric study.

The hippocampal region is known to accumulate experimentally applied and environmentally occurring lead and to be implicated in lead-induced behavioral deficits. With the intention of investigating morphological changes resulting from the lower range of exposures that produce behavioral alterations in laboratory animals, the volumes of hippocampal… CONTINUE READING
