Neurobehavioral Toxicity

NTP has developed a range of approaches and testing regimens for evaluating potential toxic effects of exposure to environmental and occupational substances on the nervous system. These studies are carried out through the use of rodent models. Tests include evaluations of motor activity, startle response and learning and memory.
NTP is located at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health.
