Abstract

Abstract To highlight the influence of radio noise (75 Db) and of sleep deprivation on short term memory and attention to details tasks. The participants were 125 young students aged between 19 and 26 years old (m= 22.74; S.D.=2.81). The instrument: DT (Schuhfried, 2006). By applying Mann Whitney nonparametric test for independent groups the research hypothesis has been confirmed (p<0.05). The current paper highlights the fact that on short term, the group of young students obtained statistically significant better results at noise exposure for the reactivity test to multiple stimuli concerning the correct answers and the mean of the reaction times.
