Lakeview’s Dr. Tina Trudel will be speaking on Neurotoxicology and the risks of living in a chemical world, as the key note address for the October 22, 2013 Maine Brain Injury Conference.  This presentation will examine the impact of neurotoxin exposure, with a focus on central nervous system damage and concomitant symptoms.  Common occupational and environmental neurotoxins will be discussed, as well as the effects of low level long-term exposure.  Neuropsychological evaluation and findings will be highlighted.  Participants will learn about the global issue of neurotoxin exposure and potential damage including: peripheral nervous system; central nervous system;  combined CNS/PNS;  indirect structural damage; and indirect reactive effects.  Key physical, cognitive and behavioral symptoms, as well as soft signs, of neurotoxin injury, in the contexts of acute versus low level long term exposure will be identified.  Specific classes of neurotoxins (metals, solvents, etc.), and their occupational and environmental risks and symptom profiles will be reviewed, along with general treatment options for more common neurotoxin exposures.
