The book contains the proceedings of a symposium entitled Behavioral Toxicology: An Emerging Discipline, held in conjunction with the Southwest Psychological Association meetings, April 30, 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Authors of formal presentations later reviewed and enlarged their contributions. The participants were drawn from a number of different disciplines including toxicology, pharmacology, psychology, physiology, and veterinary medicine. The intent of the book is to provide a state of the art overview of the area of behavioral toxicology. It includes chapters discussing some of the most fundamental aspects such as sources of funding (Chapter 1), and basic methodological and experimental considerations (Chapters 2, 3, 4). In addition, there are chapters that address specific areas of investigation including the utilization of techniques to assess the interaction of the animal with its environment (Chapters 5, 6, 7), considerations in sensory toxicology (Chapter 8), and employment of electrophysiological techniques (Chapters 9, 10).
