Our two master students, Julie Hetru and Angèle Markay, published preliminary data during their master thesis under the supervision of Alessandra Carion. It is our first article related to behavioral effects of pollutant exposure (the natural neurotoxin BMAA -ß-N-methylamino-L-alanine) during fish development. It successfully used the mangrove rivulus as an ecotoxicological model to assess the impacts of neurotoxins on behavior. Further developments will investigate the long term effects (latent effects in adults and across generations) and the molecular mechanisms of neurotoxicity (epigenetics). The full article can be found at Journal of Xenobiotics.
