Title: Lead exposure and the prevalence of emotional and behavioural problems experienced by children in the Port Pirie cohort study / Jane Mudge.
Author: Mudge, Jane

School/Discipline: Dept. of Psychiatry
Abstract: This thesis examines the relationship between environmental lead exposure and later emotional and behavioural problems experienced by 11-13 year old children enrolled in the Port Pirie Cohort Study (PPCS). The PPCS is the first study to monitor prospectively the association between lifetime blood lead exposure and children's behaviour. Prenatal and postnatal measures of lead exposure are collected from birth along with a large number of biomedical, socio-environmental and familial factors that might confound the relationship between lead exposure and children's behaviour.
