Assessing the neurotoxic potential of chemicals. A multidisciplinary approach.
International symposium on neurobehavioral methods and effects in occupational and environmental health. Tokyo (JPN), 1991/07/08.
Since 1981, the development of methodology to assess the neurotoxic potential of chemicals has been a high priority within the Intemational Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS).
Following the completion of an in-depth review of the scientific principles and methods for the assessment of neurotoxicity associated with chemical exposures, IPCS started to develop a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach for neurotoxicity testing of chemicals.
In view of the complexity of the nervous system and the variety of effects caused by chemicals, no single test or approach will be appropriate.
