Project 4: Effects of Bisphenol A (BPA)
on the Developing Cortex

Project 4: Description of Study


The goal of this project is to use a rodent model to determine whether exposure to BPA during either the perinatal or adolescent periods can alter the development of sexual dimorphic cortical brain regions, and whether these changes are associated with changes in cognitive behavior. Project 4 rodent studies are designed to parallel the studies that are being conducted in human infants and adolescents in projects 1 and 2.
