Abstract
The report of a workgroup session from a workshop conducted by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry on the identification of behavioral neurotoxicity resulting from exposure of humans to hazardous environmental substances was presented. Difficulties associated with the identification of neurotoxic effects resulting from environmental exposures were discussed, and the use of analogous situations such as occupational research, clinical reports, human laboratory research, theory based models, and animal research to establish a research model for this problem was examined. The workshop group recommended identifying functions that were affected by neurotoxic chemicals from occupational literature as a starting point to identify neurotoxic effects of chemicals found in hazardous waste sites. The selection of core and secondary sets of functions and tests was described as were protocols and guidelines for diagnostic test administration.
