Habituation is a basic process of learning in which repeated exposure to a sensory stimulus leads to a decrease in the strength of neuronal activations and behavioral responses. In addition to increases in neuronal activity, sensory stimuli can also lead to decreases in neuronal activity. Until now, the effects of habituation on stimulus-induced neuronal deactivations have not been investigated. We performed functional magnetic resonance imaging in 30 healthy subjects during repetitive… CONTINUE READING
