Neurotoxicity and Biochemical Aspects
Neurotoxicity is any damage or effect in the Central Nervous system caused by biological, chemical, or physical agents. These agents are known as Neurotoxins. The manifestations of Neurotoxicity include effects on memory, cognition, sensory processes, Intellectual actions, motor functions, gait and movement control Neurotoxicity is considered as the cause for most of the Neurodegenerative disorders like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Motor neurone diseases and others causing a Cytotoxic damage. The biochemical studies are being carried out to determine the threshold values for Neurotoxins and are made to conclusively address the role of enzymatic activity, role of proteins, and other physico-chemical agents.
