To reach the aim of the project, we propose the following work plan:

1. To identify mechanisms behind noise-induced vascular and cerebral damage

2. To investigate potential synergistic effects of traffic noise and particulate matter

3. To reveal in translational experimental studies the effects of noise on healthy subjects…
