Re: AUDITORY Digest - 19 Feb 2012 to 20 Feb 2012 (#2012-42)

Dear Sungyoung,

you might find a paper from my lab interesting where we measured temporal perceptual weights for annoyance (and loudness), using methods of molecular psychophysics (psychophysical reverse correlation).

* Dittrich, K., & Oberfeld, D. (2009). A comparison of the temporal weighting of annoyance and loudness. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 126(6), 3168-3178.

Our results show that the first 100 to 300 ms of a level-fluctuating sound have a greater impact on the annoyance than the following temporal sections. We did not study environmental sounds, however.

In this context, another recent paper might be of interest, where we studied the effects of the temporal structure of sounds (level profile) on perceptual weights for loudness. Given the well known correlation between loudness and annoyance, this might be relevant for annoyance, too.

* Oberfeld, D., & Plank, T. (2011). The temporal weighting of loudness: Effects of the level profile. Attention, Perception & Psychophysics, 73(1), 189-208.

You can download the two papers from my web page, http://www.staff.uni-mainz.de/oberfeld/index_publikationen.html.

Dear List,

I am looking for paper(s) that introduce human perception of annoyance
related to environmental noise (or just sound).

Especially I am looking for the relationship between annoyance and temporal
structure (variation) of noise.

Can one recommend related papers for me? It would be very appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

Sungyoung Kim
