Summary Molecular Neurotoxicology: Environmental Agents and Transcription-Transduction Coupling deals with changes in gene expression following exposure to neurotoxicants, as well as deciphering signal transduction or transcription coupling that is altered by the same exposure. Until now, little has been published on the topic in one reference, and toxicologists specialising in neurotoxicology, and also in metals toxicology and molecular biology will find not only the current state of the field described, but also a look to future developments
