Solvents

Abstract

Solvents must be included in any discussion of neuropsychological toxicology, since in the 100 years that organic solvents have been produced, evidence has slowly accrued to suggest their involvement in overt and subclinical neurotoxic syndromes. Approximately 9.8 million workers inhale or come into skin contact with solvents every day in the United States, suggesting a sizable population at risk for neurotoxic exposure effects (Organic Solvent Neurotoxicity, 1987).
