||The effect of noise of 75 and 100dB(A) alone and in combination with whole-body vibrations of 4 and 8Hz on the cognitive performance of 20 male volunteers was studied. The volunteers performed five-choice reaction tasks. The error rates were high at all combined exposures. They were highest at an exposure to 8Hz and 75dB(A). Response times were shortest at the exposure to 8Hz and 100dB(A), while they were rather long at exposure to 8Hz and 75dB(A). From these results it is concluded that the vibrations exert some compensatory effect.
