The neurotoxic organometal, trimethyltin (TMT), was administered to rats on postnatal day (PND)5. Neurotoxicity was assessed throughout subsequent development using morphological, biochemical and functional endpoints. These consisted of brain weight measures and histology (morphology), assays of nervous system-specific proteins (biochemistry) and neurobehavioral indices of activity and learning (function). All three indices were affected.
