Research project: Can white noise facilitate children's attention and performance? - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 

Testing the moderate brain arousal model

The aim of this research project is to investigate the effects of auditory white noise on attention and cognitive performance. Earlier research found that noise exposure under certain conditions can improve performance, in particular that of individuals with attentional problems. This project is designed to develop models of the relation between attention and white noise further and, using experimental data, to validate predictions made by a recent theory of this phenomenon.

Duration: 2009-2013
