By studying the brains of mice whose mothers were exposed to titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles during pregnancy, the researchers determined changes in gene expression affecting several parts of the brains of the mice, resulting in problems that showed up as they developed.

QUOTE: ” The analysis provides data to support the hypothesis that maternal TiO2 exposure results in alteration to the cerebral cortex, olfactory bulb and the regions intimately related to dopamine systems of offspring mice.”
