Abstract:

The report discusses how noise influences performance in complex and unpredictable ways. Variables associated with the sound itself as well as task variables are seen to determine the effects on performance. In addition, subject variables are also noted. The investigations described were concerned with the relationship between variables in the several categories and performance on a variety of types of target detection, vigilance, and psychomotor tasks.
