Targeted cytotoxins are used in experimental neurobiology Neurobiology
Study of the development and function of the nervous system, with emphasis on how nerve cells generate and control behavior. The major goal of neurobiology is to explain at the molecular level how nerve cells differentiate and develop their to produce neural lesions of unprecedented selectivity to match the complexity of the organization of the nervous system itself. Researchers in the neurosciences, psychology, pharmaceuticals, and other specialties introduce the considerations and background of the toxins, then describe examples of using the immunotoxin immunotoxin /im·mu·no·tox·in/ (im´u-no-tok?sin) any antitoxin.
A hybrid molecule formed by binding a toxin to a monoclonal antibody, used to destroy tumor cells. 192 IgG-saporin to make lesions on the cholinergic cholinergic /cho·lin·er·gic/ (ko?lin-er´jik)
