This project will use the best available measurements of sleep and physiological activation responses to a range of different noise types to carefully test noise impacts on sleep macro-structure (sleep stage distribution and wake time during the sleep period) and sleep micro-structure (brief arousal and physiological activation responses). Participants who take part in the (CATI) and consent to being contacted about potential further involvement in this project, may be approached to take part in this phase of the study. Residents . . .

30 Oct 2014 We are pleased to announce the formation of an Independent Noise Working Group to investigate wind turbine Excess Amplitude Modulation noise. Ask anyone living close to a wind farm about the noises it makes. Many will tell you that the most annoying is a ‘swish/thump’ from the turbine blades that frequently occurs at night. It isn’t its loudness that upsets – for this they should have protection through the normal planning process – but its recurrent, sleep . . .
