Phenylketonuria and damage to the dopaminergic system of the prefrontal cortex; Smith, Kates, & Vriezen, 1993). Although considerable effort has been invested in searching for the specific site(s) and mechanism(s) of lead neurotoxicity, there is "no unifying hypothesis of the fundamental neurobiological mechanisms of lead toxicity" (Silbergeld, 1992a, p. 90). Lead's effects are legion and apparent in many organ systems. One reason is the very general level at which lead poisons physiologic processes.

2 lists the tests in the battery and the factors to which they pertain. The battery was administered to seventy-nine 19- and 20-year-olds. Multivariate regression analyses were carried out in which the test scores contributing to each of the four components of attention were treated as joint dependent variables and examined in relation to the concentration of lead in dentin and bone.

P-value to the right of each distribution refers to null hypothesis that the distribution of residual scores is normal. ) goal in lead research has been to describe overall population risks rather than to ascertain characteristics that determine an individual child's risk. In attempting to address the first issue , we reasoned that if the lower mean score of the "high" cord blood lead group was due to the inordinate influence of a small subset of especially sensitive children, the distribution of "developmental responses" within this group should be bimodal.
