Synthetic pyrethroids are among the most common pesticides and insecticides currently in worldwide use. Eriksson and co-workers postulated that oral exposure of mice to pyrethroids during a neonatal brain growth spurt induces permanent disturbance in the cerebral muscarinic cholinergic receptor (MAChR) and behaviour. However, the scientific basis for these phenomena is now under discussion. The present study was performed to determine whether the experimental findings of Eriksson's study could… CONTINUE READING
