Abstract

Neurotoxicology: Unraveling the Complex Interplay between Chemicals and the Nervous System

Robert Wenig*

Neurotoxicology is a multidisciplinary field that investigates the adverse effects of chemical agents on the nervous system. This review delves into the intricate relationship between various chemicals and neural health, exploring mechanisms of neurotoxicity, associated health impacts, and assessment strategies. Neurotoxic agents, including heavy metals, pesticides, industrial chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, disrupt neural function through mechanisms such as oxidative stress, neurotransmitter system interference, and inflammation. Cutting-edge techniques like stem cell-derived models and neuroimaging facilitate the assessment of neurotoxicity. By enhancing our understanding of these complex interactions, neurotoxicology contributes to informed risk management and the development of safer chemicals, safeguarding neurological wellbeing.
