The first edition of Experimental and Clinical Neurotoxicology published in 1980 rapidly established itself as the leading reference work on the toxic effects of chemicals on the nervous system. The second edition is thoroughly updated and revised. The underlying principles are discussed in Part I and neurotoxicants are systematically described in Part II.
Part I: Fundamentals of Experimental and Clinical Neurotoxicology
Part II: Chemicals with Neurotoxic Potential
- Biological Principles of Chemical Neurotoxicity
- Human Disease
- Aspects of Veterinary Neurotoxicity
This section presents an encyclopedic description of 450 exogenous neurotoxic chemicals/mixtures, beginning with Absinthe and ending with Zolpidem. With the rapid new developments in neuroscience in recent years and the increased concern about environmental toxins, the second edition will appeal to a broad range of professionals, among them, neurologists, toxicologists, neurobiologists, and specialists in occupational health.
