ANON POST: Paint fumes

I'd heard once that paint fumes cause brain damage and breathing problems, but I'm not sure how credible this is, particularly brain damage. Google hasn't helped. I tried "paint fumes" combined with "brain damage", "poison" or "poisoning" and got only random articles of dubious credibility. Even if I can trust the info I've gotten from them, the information I got is too general.

How much exposure is needed to produce the desired side effects - minutes, hours? Will food cooked next door to a room that's being painted be dangerous when eaten because of the fumes? Brain damage means what exactly - what parts or functions are targeted, and what kind of symptoms are there? Lower IQ, less sophisticated thinking process, memory problems? Is the damage permanent?
