Nancy Fiedler, Ph.D.
Controlled human exposure health effects studies, incorporating chemical exposures and psychological stress to model realistic environmental exposures.
Epidemiologic investigations of toxic encephalopathy among workers chronically exposed to solvents and lead with a focus on integrating neuropsychological testing, exposure assessment, and functional imaging.
Translational research to examine whether alteration in HPA axis function among lead exposed animals translates to humans chronically exposed to lead International studies based in Thailand to investigate the cognitive and behavioral effects of pesticide exposure among children.
Discovered a negative dose response relationship between lifetime solvent exposure and functional imaging activation patterns during performance of a working memory task.
Demonstrated neurobehavioral performance deficits among workers chronically exposed to solvents
Validated a lifetime solvent exposure index with neurobehavioral performance among workers chronically exposed to solvent mixtures
Current blood and bone lead alters hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis function among workers with lifetime exposure
Developing behavioral research capacity among public health students at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.
