Abstract

There has been little systematic research of the effects of chronic inhalant abuse. This paper reports a prospective study of the cognitive functioning of inhalant abusing adolescents and young adults, contrasted with a comparable group not using inhalants in the 6 months prior to testing, and non-clinical controls.
