The aim of the present work was to study the influence of masking broad-band (white), impulse and interrupted noise with intensities LAeq 60 and 90 dB (A) on the execution of some psychophysiological tasks.
The following parameters were studied : pulse frequency and variation, breathing frequency and variation, vascular tone etc.
The psychological tasks model different parts of the operators'activity and include : conduction of mathematical calculations at datum speed : test related to the information processing ; complex optional task supplied by Piorkovski's device.
After statistical processing of results by Student - Fischer's t test and monofactor dispersion analysis it was established that the masking noise effect was more strongly expressed in the execution of psychophysiological tasks connected with the main memory.
Of all tested physiological parameters the changes in the peripheral circulation, expressed in elevated vascular tone of peripheral blood vessels, were the most significant.
