    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International Symposium on Neurobehavioral Methods and Effects in Occupational and Environmental Health. Cairo (EGY), 1994/12/03.

    With the rapid growth of industrialization in China, occupational and environmental exposure to chemicals has increased in frequency and in types of chemical exposures.

    A growing number of Chinese researchers are showing a special interest in exploring the effects of chemicals on the central nervous system.

    This paper presents a comprehensive review of neurobehavioral toxicology in China.

    It describes research into the « reference values » of the Neurobehavioral Core Test Battery (NCTB) tests, the development and improvement of the computer-administered Chinese version of the Neurobehavioral Evaluation System (NES-C), and exploration of related biomarkers.

    On the basis of this research, baseline data for the reference values for six subtests of the NCTB were preliminarily recommended.

    The upgraded NES-C2 has proven to possess higher stability and validity compared with the previous version, NES-C.

    Biomarkers derived from the changes in levels of neurotransmitter metabolites might be used as supplementary biomarkers of Pb-induced neurotoxicity.
