Effects of Pyriproxyfen Exposure on Nervous System Develpment in Zebrafish
MetadataShow full item record
Pyriproxyfen is used in agricultural and veterinary pests. It is also used to treat drinking water sources, to prevent mosquito breeding. Therefore, it is debated that pyriproxyfen treated water consumption can cause microcephaly in newborns. We aimed to study the effect of pyriproxyfen on nervous system development, and whether it can cause brain effects. This project was completed with contributions from Maria Bondesson from Intelligent Systems Engineering, Indiana University.
