||Pathological EEG changes in workers exposed to halogenated insecticides
||Pathologische EEG-Veränderungen bei Arbeiten mit halogenhaltigen Insektiziden [in German]|
||Nov. 1973, Vol.23, No.11, p.340-344. Illus. 20 ref.
||This article reviews a number of communications on EEG anomalies observed in persons exposed to halogenated insecticides, and analyses the results of examinations carried out by the authors on 73 workers; pathological EEG anomalies were observed in 29.9% of them, and the occupational exposure was comprised between 7 months and 19 years. Hypotheses are made concerning the biological phenomena occurring in the human brain as a result of exposure to halogenated insecticides. The EEG reverted to normal only several months after cessation of exposure.
