The purposes of this investigation were to determine whether adults display alterations of cardiac rate under acoustical stimulus conditions and whether such alterations are influenced by signal level. The stimulus consisted of a narrow band of noise centered at 1 000 Hz and presented at 20, 40, 60 and 80 dB SPL. The stimulus was found to produce alterations of heart rate significantly different from variation under non-stimulus conditions, indicating that cardiovascular responses occurred. However, the responses themselves were unaffected by differences of sound pressure level.
