Working with health-affected constituencies, in particular learning and developmental disabilities organizations, to educate their members about possible environmental links to various health problems and to nurture their capacity to advocate for policies that protect children from neurotoxicants.
Provides expertise in neuroscience, neurochemistry, neurotoxicology, neuropathology, and clinical neurology for studies done in animal models or in vitro.
Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) – provides information on neurotoxicology and children’s health
This is a great site that lists chemicals that cause toxic neuropathies with detailed descriptions.
Neurotoxicology Research Core, Center for Ecogentics and Environmental Health, University of Washington
Neurotoxicology Research Group of the Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences (IRAS) of Utrecht University
Research on biochemical and molecular mechanisms involved in metal toxicity particularly arsenic, lead and manganese.
Mechanistic neurotoxicology with a focus on serine esterases, particularly Neuropathy Target Esterase (NTE), the enzyme whose inhibition by organophosphorus agents, followed by aging is thought to be the principal component in the etiology of organophosphorus compound-induced delayed neuropathy (OPIDN).
