The World Health Organization has clearly indicated that noise is an increasing public health problem. Apart from the obvious adverse effects - hearing loss, consequences for speech intelligibility, disorders such as tinnitus - exposure to excessive noise also results in sleep disturbances, cardiovascular and psychophysiologic problems, performance reduction, annoyance responses, and adverse social behavior. There is now consensus that sound overstimulation can lead to permanent increases in behavioral thresholds.Noise and the Brain is the first book to thoroughly explore the underlying neuroscience of noise exposure. This authored work will cover basic neuroscience of the auditory system, epidemiology, plasticity, quality of life, and traumatic or psychological effects.
