-Comments by E-mail on Octabromodiphenyl ether:

Correction on Viberg references:  On page 23 there is reference to 'Viberg (2001a)' but no such reference is in the list at the end of the documebnt and there is not even a 'Viberg (2001)'. The reference should be to Viberg (2003) - specifically, Viberg, H., Fredriksson, A. and Eriksson, P. (2003).  Neonatal exposure to polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE 153) disrupts spontaneous behaviour, impairs learning and memory, and decreases hippocampal cholinergic receptors in adult mice.  Toxicol. Appl. Pharmacol. 192, 95-106.  There is a 'Viberg (2003)' reference in the list but it is not complete, only nested in another reference.
