Regional brain volume loss associated with mean childhood blood lead level for the Cincinnati Lead Study Participants

A composite representation of regions with significant volume loss for male and female participants in the Cincinnati Lead Study (n = 157) associated with mean childhood blood lead level is shown with red and yellow clusters overlaid on a standard brain template. The first row presents views from the midline of the left and right hemispheres, respectively; the second row demonstrates views from the back and front of the cerebrum, respectively; the third row shows the lateral right and left hemispheres; and the fourth row shows views from below and above the cerebrum.
