Jaskowski P, Rybarczyk K, Jaroszyk F. The relationship between latency of auditory evoked potentials, simple reaction time, and stimulus intensity. Psychol Res. 1994;56(2):59-65.
The effects of loudness on the latency of evoked potentials and on simple reaction time were compared. It was found that both reaction time and the evoked-potential latency increases with decreasing stimulus intensity. However, different slopes of the curves were found. This is explained in terms of the arousal effect of loud auditory stimuli.
