Describes 2 experiments with 52 women (approximate average age, 34 yrs). In Exp I, Ss were tested individually on an embedded figures task in both noise (85 db) and quiet (55 db). Half of the Ss had the noise treatments in the order quiet–noise and half in the order noise–quiet. In Exp II, Ss were given a more difficult embedded figures task. Neither experiment showed any effect of noise on performance.
