Neurotoxin is a poisonous substance that damages tissues within the central nervous system; produced by certain bacteria or by the cellular deterioration of some bacteria. Other naturally occurring neurotoxins are present in the venom of some snakes, the spines of particular shells, or the skin of a shellfish or fish.
Many drugs and chemicals are also neurotoxic. Neurotoxicology is the study of these agents.
