Susan A. Korrick

There is limited, if any, epidemiologic research on the impact of adolescent exposure to phenols and phthalates on adolescent neurobehavior despite likely increased susceptibility to such exposures in this age group. In this pilot study, we assessed this relationship and demonstrated preliminary support for hypothesized associations of adolescent BPA or phthalate exposures with adverse neurobehavior.
