Abstract: A review of published articles examining the effects of manganese exposure to workers and community residents shows adverse neurologic outcomes. Innovative biomarkers, including those from neuroimaging, were incorporated into many of these studies to assess both manganese exposure and neurologic outcomes. A variety of health effects were evaluated, including cognitive and motor impairments. Studies of community participants residing near manganese point sources show variability in outcomes, reflecting the complexities of exposure measurement, individual absorption, and assessment of neurologic effects. The aging population provides insight into the impacts of chronic exposure in younger populations.
