Sound research at Acoustical Society meeting
Date:5/9/2011

wonderful opportunity to approximate the task facing infants by creating a setting where adults are forced to infer what the meaning of different sound elements might be, and to do it in a functional way." Their results have broad implications. For example, identifying functional sound units in language is a problem in dyslexia, so this work may one day have clinical applications. Intriguingly, results suggest the video game and its alien soundtrack may engage different areas of the brain in rapid and robust learning. The next step is to investigate this by observing players with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to view their real-time brain reactions to the video game. Presentation 5aSC26, "Learning acoustically complex word-like units within a video game training paradigm," in on Friday morning, May 27 in Metropolitan room B.

Code Loud: Noise in Emergency Rooms and Nursing Homes

Noise annoys; we all know it. But impacts of acoustics on caregivers in emergency rooms (ERs) and nursing homes have been little studied. New findings, however, from several investigations into noise effects on healthcare demonstrate that ERs have such loud background noise levels they impair listeners' ability to understand speech, according to work by a Georgia Institute of Technology team at two Atlanta hospitals. ERs have about twice the background noise level approximately 60 decibels of a well-designed university lecture hall, which is engineered acoustically so the lecturer's voice projects over background noise to be understood by students. Nursing homes also suffer from elevated noise levels that contribute to the stress of staff and residents, according to a Vancouver, British Columbia, pilot study, the first to perform physiological monitoring of stress by measuring cortisol levels, and the
