Normal hearing children: Noise, memory and learning

Staffan Hygge

This is an overview of research into how noise affects cognition, particularly in normal hearing children. The first part covers transportation noise from aircraft, road traffic and railways in the way they affect learning from a written text. The second part covers research on what is learnt from a spoken message when the speech signal is distorted by e.g., irrelevant speech, a low signal-to-noise ratio or a long reverberation time. From a theoretical or methodological viewpoint the basic concepts are Working memory (WM) and Episodic memory.

Keywords: Noise, speech, children, cognition, learning signal-to-noise ratio, reverberation time
