How does white noise influence the human brain?

Andrej asked the Naked Scientists:
   
White noise generators for sleeping baby or adult? How white noise influences human brain? I personaly like listening a form of white noise produced by hair dryer. When I was a baby I burned a fan dryer because I would start crying as soon as my parents would turn it off.

I found some articles that were suggesting that white noise could delay auditory development of the brain in infants so I was wondering if this has any scientific background...
What do you think?
