Male Fischer rats were exposed repeatedly to high concentrations of hexane for 10 minutes in a pattern resembling human solvent abuse or to low concentrations of hexane continuously for 8 or 24 hours daily. Concentrations of hexane in blood and brain were linearly related to the concentrations of hexane in the chamber after a 10-minute exposure, and(More)
