The keywords for the search were: quercetin, toxic agents, and neurodegenerative disease. This review aims to identify the protective effects of quercetin against neurotoxic agents. This study found that quercetin had protective activities against toxic agents-induced neurotoxicity by modulating oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptosis pathways.
