Unlike other apparatuses, the potential effects on the nervous system of occupational exposure to anaesthetic gases have not been exhaustively reviewed. Because of the relevance of these effects, their significance of the quality of life of the exposed subjects and of the increased risk inherent in their delicate work tasks, these themes deserve the greatest attention. This paper briefly examines the data from the international literature as well as the neurobehavioral methods employed, underlines the existing gaps of knowledge and eventually proposes strategies aimed at filling these gaps of knowledge.
