Aim of study (acc. to author)
physiological test paradigm ( auditory discrimination task; determination of auditory order threshold (OT)) was used. Subjects had to decide on which side the first of two succeeding stimuli was presented. Inter- stimulus-intervals (ISI) were gradually reduced as long as no mistakes occured; wrong responses led to expansion of the ISI. Endpoint
continuous for 30 min
Acoustically shielded room.
exposure the subjects relaxed on a stretcher.
Double blind experiments were performed. Each
test person participated in the experiment twice (on separate days), once with and once without exposure.
