Title Subjective, behavioral and psychophysiological effects of noise
Bibliographic information 1990, Vol.16, Suppl.1, p.29-38. 92 ref.
Abstract The subjective and psychophysiological responses to noise and the effects of noise on performance are reviewed in this article. Emphasis is placed on moderate intensity noise and on the effects relevant for occupational noise exposure. It is concluded that in many respects research presents a rather inconsistent picture of these effects. Still, it is evident that the non-auditory effects of noise may be serious enough to warrant as much general attention in the occupational setting as has for some time been accorded in residential settings.
