Abstract : The report is a summary and evaluation of research findings that relate to any effects of noise other than to the ear and related structures. For example, incuded herein are research efforts concerned with psychological effects of noise, effects on task performance, effects on the cardio-vascular system, and on general health. This report also presents areas and types of research studies that may help to provide full answers to questions on the degree of noise control desirable with respect to the non-auditory effects of noise normally present in living and working environments.
