The organic solvent tetrachloroethylene (Per) is proposed to be a human neurotoxicant. In order to evaluate whether the sensory system is affected by Per at low concentrations, two groups of male volunteers were exposed in an inhalation chamber to 10 and 50 ppm Per, respectively. During the inhalation exposure, which lasted for 4 h per day on four consecutive days, visually evoked potentials (VEPs) and brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs) were measured. In addition, in some of these… CONTINUE READING
