Description - Neurobehavioral Toxicology: Neurological and Neuropsychological Perspectives by James W. Albers

This comprehensive introduction to the developing field of neurobehavioral toxicology, offers an extensive evaluation of the ways in which toxins affect the human nervous system and behavior. It combines two fields of expertise, neurology and neuropsychology, both of which are founded on the assessment and treatment of the nervous system in health and disease, to consider the ways in which substances impact on the human body. It includes detailed analysis of individuals with neurological or neurobehavioral disorders and considers how these may be attributable to neurotoxicants. It also addresses and critiques the scientific methodologies relevant to developing a clinical diagnosis of these disorders and their etiologies. This book, the first of three volumes, provides a thorough background to the emerging field of neurobehavioral toxicology, by looking at current clinical approaches and tests, as well as assessing current clinical research. The analysis of the impact of toxins on the human nervous system is particularly pertinent given the ongoing expansion of pharmaceuticals, industrial hazards, biological warfare and global pollution. The work will be of interest to practicing neurologists and neuropsychologists, as well as to, occupational medicine physicians and medical toxicologists.
