We are pleased to introduce this special issue of Neurotoxicology. It reproduces Volume
7, Number 1 of the Seychelles Medical and Dental Journal (SMDJ), initially published
in November, 2004. Publication of the SMDJ was discontinued in 2005 and the manuscripts
it published are no longer accessible to the scientific community. The papers in this
special issue lay the background for the Seychelles Child Development Study (SCDS)
and provide valuable data on the MeHg exposures that occurred at Niigata, Japan. They
are relevant to the ongoing debate over whether the consumption of fish and consequently
low-level exposure to methylmercury (MeHg) is a risk to human health.
