AbstractAn overview of various research on the combined effects of noise and vibration on cognition and communication was presented. Previous studies of cognitive performance in noise and combined noise and vibration have utilized vigilance, short-term memory and counting tasks. Most of the response to combined noise and vibration have focused on subjective annoyance or discomfort, motor control and temporary threshold shift (TTS). Future research should concentrate on noise and vibration signals, speech intelligibility, and cognitive tasks.
