Many chemical compounds present in workplace settings can produce a number of impairments in the human nervous system. As the situations in which neurotoxic agents have been recognized in exposed workers has grown, so has the importance of occupational neurotoxicology as a specialty. Addressing some of the most vital concerns in the field, Occupational Neurotoxicology discusses: Neurotoxic agents commonly encountered in the workplace
Signs and symptoms of neurotoxicity and of the factors affecting neurotoxic effects
Biological monitoring and the use of biomarkers
Epidemiological methods and clinical approaches to occupational neurotoxicology
The analysis of behavioral, electrophysiological, and imaging techniques in the diagnosis of neurotoxicity
Occupational neurotoxicity in developing countries
The evaluation and management of occupational illnesses due to neurotoxicity Occupational Neurotoxicology concisely covers important facts on the adverse effects of chemical, biological, and physical agents that can impair or alter the structure of the nervous system. Professionals and researchers in the fields of occupational medicine, toxicology, epidemiology, neurology, industrial hygiene, and psychology will all find relevant information on the health problems that can occur from exposure to neurotoxicants.
