Occupants of sick buildings often complain of CNS symptoms including headache and memory loss, but little objective evidence of neurobehavioral effects exists. Available evidence of neurobehavioral effects of low level VOC exposure representative of new buildings is reviewed. Methods suitable for studying the neurobehavioral effects of low-level VOC exposure--including computerized behavioral tests, balance tests and sensory evoked potentials--are reviewed. The use of computerized behavioral tests in conjunction with symptom questionnaires is recommended for low-level VOC studies.
