B Workshop Agenda Environmental Neuroscience: Advancing the Understanding of How Chemical Exposures Impact Brain Health and Diseaseâ A Virtual Workshop June 25, 2020, via Zoom Hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicineâs Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders in Collaboration with the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology Workshop Objectives: This public workshop will bring together experts and key stakeholders from academia, government, industry, and nonprofit orga- nizations to explore the current knowledge landscape and future oppor- tunities in neurotoxicology. Invited presentations and discussions will be designed to: â¢ Provide an overview of what is known about neurotoxic exposures and how they lead to neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders; â¢ Explore how new technologies can be harnessed to identify previ- ously unknown neurotoxic chemicals; â¢ Consider whether algorithms can be developed to better predict the effects of cumulative exposures and interactions across the life span on brain health; and â¢ Discuss research gaps and collaborative opportunities between neuroscientists and environmental health scientists. 67 PREPUBLICATION COPYâUncorrected Proofs
