Is there evidence that ethylmercury readily crosses the blood-brain barrier?

Scientific research can provide us with factual, repeatable, measurable, and determinable results. As such, scientific research can provide information that can be used in the decision-making process in the care of patients and in public policy. Although it has been suggested that ethylmercury (C2H5Hg+)-containing compounds do not cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB), the goal of this Faqtron is to examine studies undertaken as well as the literature that addresses the question as to whether ethylmercury-containing compounds cross the BBB.
