The use and occurrence of organic solvents in the work environment of industrialized countries, the factors governing uptake and tissue distribution of solvents, and the events leading to toxicity are among the many topics that are explored in detail. The book also emphasizes the need for further studies and development of methods in quantitative neurology. This comprehensive examination brings together information with a focus on human concerns, including such topics as the toxic effect of solvents on the central nervous system, simulation techniques, neurobehavioral methods in the prevention of neurotoxic disease, and symptoms and signs in solvent exposed populations. Studies on long-term solvent exposure are presented, exploring effects on liver and kidney cell morphology, reproductive processes, endocrine control gonadal fuction, and behavioral performance. Basic toxicokinetic features are reviewed, along with factors affecting susceptibility to toxic reactions
