The neurobehavioral changes in wild-type and metallothionein (MT)-null mice after the cessation of long-term, low-level exposure to Hg0 were investigated. MT-null and wild-type females were continuously (24 h/day) exposed to mercury vapor (Hg0) at 0.055 mg/m3 (range: 0.043-0.073 mg/m3), which was similar to the current threshold limit value (TLV), for 29 weeks. The effects on behavior, such as locomotor activity in the open field (OPF), learning ability in the passive avoidance response (PA… CONTINUE READING
