Alternative Methods in Neurotoxicology, Volume Nine, the latest release in this series, provides an overview of important in vitro and non-vertebrate animal models available to study the neurotoxicity of a range of toxicants of occupational and environmental relevance. Chapters in this new release include Evaluation of mitochondrial function in neurotoxicology using alternative models, Planarians as a model to study neurotoxic agents, Role of Drosophila melanogaster in neurotoxicology studies: Responses to different harmful substances, Neurotoxicology of metals and metallic nanoparticles in Caenorhabditis elegans, Neurotoxicology of environmental toxicants using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model, Nauphoeta cinerea as an emerging model in neurotoxicology, and more.
Other chapters cover Human Neural Stem Cells in Developmental Neurotoxicology: Current Scenario and Future Prospects, Use of Drosophila melanogaster for advances in developmental neurotoxicology studies, 3D neurospheres and neurotoxicity of organophosphorus and TCE, Genetic factors in methylmercury-induced neurotoxicity: what we have learned from Caenorhabditis elegans models, and more.
