How­ ever, its effects and dialogue sections stick with up findings on the topic of a number of the info offered in quantity 1. the sooner paintings, which steered that electrophysiological responses can be utilized to foretell long term developmental results, is supported within the current file at the dating among auditory evoked responses in infancy and later degrees of language development.

Internal dose at anyone time will vary with intrinsic factors such as age, past exposures, and genetics, and with extrinsic factors such as location and age of residence, occupation, and patterns of activity. This variability can create substantial difficulties in classifying the individual's exposure, a problem that is exacerbated by the complexities in lead metabolism (absorption, distribution, and excretion). The concentration of lead in blood is the most frequently used index of body burden, and yet under most exposure scenarios a blood lead level mostly reflects recent exposure.

Goal in lead research has been to describe overall population risks rather than to ascertain characteristics that determine an individual child's risk. In attempting to address the first issue , we reasoned that if the lower mean score of the "high" cord blood lead group was due to the inordinate influence of a small subset of especially sensitive children, the distribution of "developmental responses" within this group should be bimodal. In contrast, a normal distribution of responses would suggest that this group's lower mean score reflected a tendency for the performance of most children to be affected, but to an extent that varied randomly.

The mean WISCR Full-Scale 10 at 10 years was 119. 1).

The MDI scores were not associated with blood lead levels measured postnatally, leading us to infer that the persistent performance differences 2.
