Organophosphate insecticides disturb neuronal network development
We are happy to announce that our paper, titled ‘Organophosphate insecticides disturb neuronal network development and function via non-AChE mediated mechanisms’ has been published in NeuroToxicology! Here, we studied the effects of exposure to two widely used insecticides, chlorpyrifos and diazinon, and their -oxon metabolites. Our results show that these compounds can affect neuronal activity and calcium homeostasis via different mechanisms than previously expected.
