Standardized psychometrical examinations of four patients who have been exposed to 1,2-dichloroethane and/or methyl bromides in the process of unloading import containers gave evidence of persisting neuropsychological deficits. In this particular case, the areas of information processing speed, selective and shared attentiveness, as well as (working) memory indicate the strongest sensitivity, whereas regarding the ability to reason, the spatial-constructive abilities and the executive functions no deficits were detected.
