Adhd, lead, and pcbs: Eubig et al. respond

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

In response to Brondum's comments we would like to reiterate that the main purpose of our review (Eubig et al. 2010) was to examine the parallels between cognitive domains affected in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and domains shown to be affected in human and animal studies of developmental exposure to lead and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), two environmental contaminants for which a relatively large body of literature exists. In doing so we hoped to explore the possible role of exposure to environmental contaminants in the variable phenotypic expression of ADHD, and to stimulate interest in further research in this area.
