Título Effects of chronic organophosphate pesticide exposure on the central nervous system.
Información bibliográfica 1977, Vol.11, No.1, p.83-95. Illus. 17 ref.
Resumen Neuropsychological tests and EEG examinations were performed in 59 subjects occupationally exposed to organophosphate pesticides, including many also exposed to organochlorine or carbamate compounds. An index of chronic exposure to these pesticides was developed. Chronic exposure to clinically non-toxic levels of organophosphates has definite quantifiable effects on asymptomatic subjects. There was a relation between higher levels of exposure and frontal lobe impairment.
