NINDS:44 Neurotoxicity occurs when the exposure to natural or manmade toxic substances (neurotoxicants) alters the normal activity of the nervous system. This can eventually disrupt or even kill neurons, key cells that transmit and process signals in the brain and other parts of the nervous system. Neurotoxicity can result from exposure to substances used in chemotherapy, radiation treatment, drug therapies, and organ transplants, as well as exposure to heavy metals such as lead and mercury, certain foods and food additives, pesticides, industrial and/or cleaning solvents, cosmetics, and some naturally occurring substances. Symptoms may appear immediately after exposure or be delayed. They may include limb weakness or numbness; loss of memory, vision, and/or intellect; headache; cognitive and behavioral problems; and sexual dysfunction. Individuals with certain disorders may be especially vulnerable to neurotoxicants.

MalaCards: Toxic Encephalopathy, also known as neurotoxicity, is related to alzheimer's disease and neuropathy. An important gene associated with Toxic Encephalopathy is GSTA3 (glutathione S-transferase alpha 3), and among its related pathways are Cytoplasmic microtubules and Nicotine addiction. The compounds ethacrynic acid and busulfan have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and eye, and related mouse phenotypes are nervous system and behavior/neurological.
