Effects on the nervous system

Conditioned reflexes of white rats inoculated with industrial dust containing molybdenum in the form of oxides and metal powder were examined [IOG154, 1965]. The strength and activity of fundamental nervous processes were upset and the excitation processes were weakened by molybdenum. The rats inoculated with molybdenum lagged behind the control group in overall development. We have been unable to ascertain the molybdenum concentrations used in this work.
