Measurement of Hand Tremor Induced by Industrial Exposure to Metallic Mercury.


Fawer et al. (1983) used a sensitive objective electronic measure of intention tremor (tremors that occur at the initiation of voluntary movements) in 26 male workers (mean age of 44 years) exposed to low levels of mercury vapor in various occupations.
