Título Neurotoxicologic studies of two carbamate pesticides in subacute animal experiments.
Información bibliográfica Mar. 1974, Vol.27, No.3, p.465-476. Illus. 19 ref.
Resumen 2 pesticides, carbaryl (1-naphthyl methylcarbamate) and arprocarb (2-isopropoxyphenyl methylcarbamate) were tested for neurotoxic effects in subacute experiments on rats. The authors examined the process of learning and performance of a previously learned task, and studied EEG patterns under resting conditions and under rhythmic light stimulation. The cholinesterase activity of the blood and of various parts of the brain was recorded. The findings in these animal experiments suggest that the early signs of possible subacute intoxication may be measured in humans by EEG and objective tests of psychological performance.
