Thus, it is not simply the study of pure science (e.g. sound or light), but rather man's understanding and reactions (e.g. to hear and see). Similarly, man's perception and reaction to stimuli such as flashing lights, buzzers, alarms, and warnings and instructions are areas with which human factors is concerned. In addition, the ability to perform tasks under various environmental conditions is also of concern.
