Summary Clinical Neurotoxicology offers accurate, relevant, and comprehensive coverage of a field that has grown tremendously in the last 20 years. You'll get a current symptomatic approach to treating disorders caused by neurotoxic agents, environmental factors, such as heavy metals and pesticides, and more. Apply discussions of cellular and molecular processes and pathology to clinical neurology. Leading authorities and up-and-coming clinical neurotoxicologists present their expertise on wide-ranging, global subjects and debate controversies in the specialty, including Gulf War Syndrome. And, Expert Consult functionality allows you to access the full text of the book online, from any Internet connection
