OBJECTIVES Since it is still controversial whether-low-to moderate long-term lead exposure below current threshold values causes neurobehavioural deficits in adults, we investigated executive functions of the prefrontal cortex, attention, and visuospatial and visuomotor functioning in lead-exposed subjects. METHODS Forty-seven lead-exposed subjects with a… (More)

It was our aim to study whether chronic exposure to vanadium reduces cognitive abilities. We investigated effects on attention, visuospatial and visuomotor functioning, reaction time, short-term memory, and prefrontal functioning. Forty-nine vanadium exposed subjects with a mean vanadium level in urine (VanU) of 14.4 micro/L and 49 controls (VanU: 0.8… (More)
