Behavioral effects of exposure to organic solvents in Dutch painters.
Thereport describes the results of a crosssectional study of solvent-exposed young and older Dutch painters and two age-matched control groups.
Both traditional and computerized neurobehavioral tests were applied.
The study did not detect any major differences between the two groups of painters and their two age-matched control groups.
It is argued that this absence of differences is probably not due to a lack of sensitivity of the tests applied or the size of the groups studied.
The level of exposure was estimated to be within a range at which previous authors have reported solvent-induced CNS effects.
