Summary, in English

ABSTRACT: This study is the third within the project Sound, Music, and Eye Movements, and results from the two previous studies examining reading for comprehension revealed no effects on eye movements such as fixation durations and saccade amplitudes with regards to sound environments. Therefore, other eye movement measures were tested in the current study, namely oculomotor control. Participants performed an anti- saccade task during eight sound environments with different types of non-linguistic distraction, while stress was measured using GSR and pupil dilation. Performance was evaluated by the participants after each sound environment, and an EPQ-R personality test and questionnaire about specific preferences regarding music and noise exposure was completed after the antisaccade task. Results from the current study suggest that oculomotor control is affected by disturbance, with highly signif- icant decrease in correct eye movements (mean correct) in most “negative” sound environments (e.g., crying baby) compared to the control condition (silence), and no significant difference in most “positive” ones (e.g., a Mozart sonata). However, contrary to the hypothesis, a flowing river showed negative effects, and traffic noise showed no effects, compared to the control condition, which suggests that familiarity plays an important role in the level of disturbance.
