The physiological and psychological impact of sound and noise
PART OF THE SOUND STUDIES LECTURE SERIES
The talk will guide you through sound and noise's different impact on physiological and psychological health and wellbeing.
How, where and to what kind of noise are we exposed? How will this affect our current, and future, health? What are the noise effects for the society, population and individual?
Why do we experience noise and sounds differently and how might this effect us and our sourrounding?
