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)
