About INA.  The International Neurotoxicology Association (INA) is an organization of scientists working in the field of neurotoxicology. Fields of interest include all disciplines related to the study of the adverse effects of chemicals on the nervous system including neurochemistry, physiology, neuropathology, and behavior.
