Research Interests:
Paul Stewart is interested in the effects of exposure to environmental toxics (e.g. PCBs and MeHg) during development on brain-behavior relationships. Specific interests include the effects of low-level exposure to persistent organic pollutants, such as PCBs and chlorinated pesticides, on cognitive development.  Current research is directed towards studying behavioral inhibition in humans and animals following exposure to organoschlorine contaminants.  His investigations of these issues involve both animal models and human studies.
