Abstract
The adverse effects of noise on behavioral functions are analyzed in terms of dynamic interaction of noise with sensory and perceptual processes, action and thought processes, attitudes and feelings, and needs and motivation. Consideration is given to the complexity and variability inherent in evaluating noise induced disturbances in behavior, as certain measurable impairments in performance may also be affected by attitude about noise, information conveyed by the noise, frustration at communication, ego involvement in work, adaptability, or other factors.
