Title: Psychological Effects of Occupational Exposure to Various Chemical Agents
Author: Lindstrom, Kari
Appeared in: International journal of psychology
Paging: Volume 12 (1977) nr. 2 pages 93-97
Year: 1977
Contents: Research on the psychological effects of occupational exposure to various chemical agents began at the Institute of Occupational Health in Helsinki in the last half of the 1950's. At first workers occupationally exposed to carbon disulfide in a rayon fiber factory were clinically examined. The se workers were submitted to psychological testing because they complained of numerous subjective psychological symptoms. Since then the behavioral effects of occupational exposure to various common solvents and lead have been studied with psychological methods. The earlier projects were either clinical or epidemiologic studies, but now experimental studies with animals have also begun. In all these investigations one of the main objectives has been to develop and find methods sensitive and specific enough to detect adverse behavioral effects.
