Abstract
Since thyroid function is intimately involved with neurobehavioral development and chlorine dioxide has been shown to disrupt thyroid function, the study was designed to evaluate the effects of chlorine dioxide exposure on selected rat behavioral and brain growth parameters. The data from the study indicate that rat pups that are exposed to chlorine dioxide pre- and post-natally, or exposed only post-natally, manifest behavioral changes as well as slower brain growth rates that are consistent with effects caused by depressed thyroid function.
