Abstract

Although noise sensitivity is known to be an important determinant of noise annoyance, its neural underpinnings are not yet well established. In the present study, high and low noise sensitive participants were selected based on their scores on the Noise Sensitivity Scale (NSS) and the Noise Sensitivity Questionnaire (NoiSeQ). Participants watched a silent film, while listening to an optimized auditory oddball task with five types of deviants (Intensity, Duration, Gap, Location and Frequency). EEG was measured during this task and event related potentials (ERPs) were calculated. Although statistical power was still low, preliminary results are in line with earlier findings showing that high noise sensitives show enhanced reactions to the temporal aspects of sounds and reduced responsiveness to sound spectral qualities.
