Abstract : To determine the effects of repeated exposure to an impulsive auditory stimulus, ten subjects were tested on a pursuit rotor task during exposure to the stimulus for four consecutive days. The stimulus (peak intensity of 112 dB with a 400 millisecond duration) was presented nine times on each day in a semi-random fashion. Performance of these subjects was compared to the performance of an additional group of ten subjects who served as a control group. (Author)
