Proof you shouldn't go overboard with your soundproofing...

Here's an article I just ran across.  There are some interesting effects of absolute silence:

A little noise is a good thing - for your brain.

Yeah John,

I read the same article, what I found interesting was the record time duration in the chamber...... 45 minutes.... I had a conversation with a fellow colleague in the field a while back and the story I heard was a lot longer time frame in the box... makes me wonder...needless to say the results I heard where pretty bad to say the least...

And now I understand why I'm so addicted to my white-noise machine.  My bedroom is very well soundproofed, damn near a zero decibel space.  If I don't have the white noise going, I don't sleep well - it's eerily quiet and spooky...
