Abstract
Behavioral toxicology, in the context of occupational health, is applied as a tool for the detection of subclinical intoxication. Psychological research provides three bodies of information that are relevant: the assessment of client response to psychotherapy, including behavior modification; psychopharmacology, especially because of its simultaneous interest in behavioral measurement and side effects; aging research, which is relevant because many toxic processes may involve an acceleration in the rate at which function declines.
