GHHE 000/5349 - Neurotoxicology (3 cr.)



Description
The nervous system has unique vulnerabilities to insult from a wide variety of etiological factors. Recently, there is a recognition that many neurodegenerative and neurological disorders may be due to a combination of risk factors and gene-environmental interactions. The unique vulnerabilities are compounded by the heterogeneousity of cellular substrates, regional specialization, a wide host of neurotransmitters and autocoid influences, as well as the influence of age, regenerative capacities, and social stressors. This interplay between chemical environment, stress, genes and cellular characteristics is approached at the molecular, and functional level, with particular attention to early detection and diagnostics.
