Journal of Learning Disabilities, v27 n6 p393-99 Jun-Jul 1994
This study, with 43 boys ages 8-12, found that children with relatively high concentrations of lead in their hair reacted significantly slower in a simple reaction-time task than did children with relatively low concentrations of lead in their hair. In addition, the former were significantly less flexible in changing their focus of attention. (Author/DB)
