Título n-Hexane-induced changes in nerve conduction velocities and somatosensory evoked potentials
Información bibliográfica 1982, Vol.51, No.1, p.45-54. Illus. 22 ref.
Resumen The cerebral evoked responses to 256 electrical stimulations of the median nerve were averaged in 15 women from a shoe factory and 15 controls. Maximal motor conduction velocity and distal sensory conduction velocities were significantly reduced in the exposed workers. Some components of the somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) had an increased latency. Results were not completely consistent. SEP may give additional information on nervous function even in subjects with peripheral neuropathy. SEP results suggested some neurotoxic effects of n-hexane on the central nervous system too.
