Decreased Brain Volume in Adults with Childhood Lead Exposure

Sex Influences Brain Volume Loss Associated with Lead Exposure (Males)

A composite representation of regions with significant volume loss for CLS participants associated with mean childhood blood lead concentrations is shown in red and yellow overlaid upon a standard brain template for males (n = 83). The model is adjusted for age at time of scanning and birth weight, using a cluster threshold of 700 voxels and unadjusted p ≤ 0.001. Views are the same as shown in Figure 1; brain template source reference [51].
