Abstract The present study was designed to investigate organophosphate (OP) exposures in mothers and children and associated neurotoxic health effects in children aged 3 to 5 years who lived in farmworkers communities in Yolo and surrounding counties in Northern California. The aims of the study were: To determine the prevalence of non-normal neurological measures in children of women who were currently doing agricultural work and compare these prevalences to children of mothers who were not currently engaged in agriculture; To determine and compare the mean scores of standard neurobehavioral tests in the children of mothers who were currently working in agriculture of those of children of mothers who were not currently working in agriculture.
