Lead is recognized by many of these molecules in much the same way calcium is recognized, but because lead then either blocks or disrupts the function of the protein it interacts with, lead disrupts communication in the nervous system, with the ultimate concern that it thereby disrupts behaviors that are dependent on those neural processes, behaviors such as adult cognitive function. Many other effects of lead are relevant to adult cognitive function. Gene expression is critical to the normal function of any cell, including neurons, and is also thought to be critical for encoding learning in the brain.
