Summary

12 male Ss were exposed for periods of 15 min to noise from a textile factory (98 dB(A)), or mental load (binary choice task) or combined load (noise + mental load). Exposure to industrial noise causes similar effects. e.g. increase of diastolic blood pressure and respiratory rate, decrease of pulse pressure, sinus arrhythmia and mental capacity, as induced by exposure to aircraft noise or traffic noise, despite great differences in noise characteristics.
