Abstract

An analysis of findings regarding the prevalence and time course of symptoms and the results of neurobehavioral testing among Michigan and Wisconsin dairy farmers, is reported. Reviewed are differences in the prevalence of neurological symptoms at the time of examination; differences in the incidence and time course of symptoms for the period 1972-1976; differences among populations and subgroups (sex and age) regarding performance test scores; correlations between performance test scores and neurological symptoms; and correlations between serum PBB levels as indicators of exposure and performance tests and neurological symptoms.
