Lucio Costa

Dr. Costa studies developmental neurotoxicology. Neurotoxicants can cause long-term changes in the central nervous system. His laboratory uses in vitro and in vivo approaches as well as biochemical, molecular, and imaging techniques to investigate mechanisms of developmental neurotoxicity. Neurotoxicants currently under study include ethanol, organophosphate insecticides, domoic acid, and polybrominated diphenyl ether fire retardants. Costa also investigates genetic variations that can affect susceptibility to neurotoxic compounds.
