Neurotoxicity refers to ‘any form of substance-induced dysfunction of the nervous system’. This broad definition already implies that neurotoxicity can be studied from many different perspectives, including neurobehavior, neurodevelopment, neurophysiology, neuropathology and neurochemistry. A large number of compounds is able to induce neurotoxicity, in particular when exposure occurs during early brain development. However, exposure to neurotoxicants can also occur later in life, e.g., at the work place or via food. The aim of this course is to familiarise participants with the consequences of neurotoxicity, mechanisms of neurotoxicity, and neurotoxicity testing methods and models.
