||The study was performed on 12 young men and 12 young women, with simulation of a 3 x 8 shift-work schedule. Their performance during a sorting task was clocked for 20min while they were simultaneously exposed to 105dB(A) continuous pink noise. Recovery from auditory fatigue (TTS2) was monitored at 4 and 6kHz for 90 minutes afterwards. The physiological strain indices observed were: heart rate, blood pressure, rectal temperature and free urinary cortisol. Conclusions are presented as well as information specific to women.
