The Handbook of Developmental Neurotoxicology provides a comprehensive account of the impacts, mechanisms, and clinical relevances of chemicals on the development of the nervous system. The book is written by internationally recognized experts on developmental neurotoxicology, covering subjects from basic neuro-development to toxic syndromes induced by various chemicals. It is an important text for both students and professionals who are interested in developmental neurobiology and neurotoxicology.
* Written by internationally recognized experts on developmental neurotoxicology
* Includes extensive references
* Well illustrated with diagrams, charts and tables
* Provides coverage of basic neurobiology as well as neurotoxicology

The influences of biological, chemical, and physical agents on the development of the nervous system is one of the most pressing issues facing today's toxicologists, and the researchers investigating this influence make vital contributions to the growing discipline of neurotoxicology. Neurotoxicants have and will continue to have significant impact on individuals and their families who deal with birth defects and neurological disorders resulting from chemical exposure, as well as on health care systems and economies dealing with the effects of these disorders on a wide scale.
The Handbook of Developmental Neurotoxicology provides a comprehensive view of the fundamental aspects of development, the agents involved, clinical syndromes induced, and risk assessment procedures for developmental neurotoxicants. The authors and editors are internationally recognized experts whose collaboration heralds a remarkable advance in the field, bridging developmental neuroscience with the principles of neurotoxicology.
The Handbook is an essential text for students and professionals in toxicology, neurotoxicology, developmental biology, pharmacology, and neuroscience.
* Comprehensive, up-to-date information on developmental neurotoxicology
* Well-illustrated material, with diagrams, charts, and tables
* Extensive references
* Compelling case studies
