Brain damage from solvent (insect killer)?

The basement is pretty closed off but should i be worried? The whole basement didn't smell of the odour i only smelt it when i got really close to the closet and plus the majority of the time i spent in the basement i had a dehumidifier running since it gets pretty humid down there when it gets warm out so that might have helped to clean the air. Is it possible that i could have got brain damage from this?

@jakeg, if you're concerned about harmful health effects, you should consult your doctor. I'm not a medical professional and this site is for patients to support patients. There's no way anyone here could assess your exposure accurately. Speaking as a layman, I doubt you have brain damage. You didn't even experience mild side effects like headaches or nausea (feeling sick). The smell is a warning sign. Please seal the container and remove it from the house, then talk to you doctor. Okay?
