The goal of this study is to evaluate the association between phthalate and BPA exposures during the adolescent period and neurobehavior. The proposal builds on an ongoing study of 788 children followed since birth to assess the impact of early life organochlorine and metal exposures on development, taking advantage of the parent study’s established infrastructure and wealth of existing data to address this new question.
