ObjectiveWe aimed to see the consequences of habituation and posthabituation by means of repeatedly measuring the effects over a longer period. MethodThe study was performed on 27 healthy volunteers. The event-related potentials were recorded from the Fz, the Cz, and the Pz electrode sites. The rare tone-frequent tone probability ratio was 20%. All subjects were asked to press a button when they heard a rare tone. The test was continued until 20 artifact-free rare tones were averaged, which was… 
Musical rhythms and their influence on P300 velocity in young females.
Exposure to music at preset different velocities did not affect the P300 in young females and several sequential registrations of P300 caused habituation, which was not seen during exposure to music before P300 recording.
Concentrate your mind by counting the flashing point: A new P300 pattern in BCI
The result showed that the performance of the BCI system could be improved using the method presented in this paper, and some green flashing points was added into the stimuli.
Variables in P300 recording: task type and electrode position.
Cz obtained the best values, highest amplitude and lowest latency of P300 responses obtained with electrodes positioned at Cz and Fz and in different tasks of infrequent stimulus identification in normal hearing individuals.
An improved P300 pattern in BCI to catch user’s attention
The results indicate that this proposed method can be a promising approach to improve the performance of the BCI system and can be an efficient method in daily application.
How predictability affects habituation to novelty
It is suggested that in highly uncertain situations, repeated exposure to stimuli can enhance habituation to novel stimuli and be supported by subjective reports of surprise and event-related potential evoked by visual-auditory incongruity.
Initial test of a T9-like P300-based speller by an ALS patient
The performance analyses indicated that the locked-in patient with ALS benefited from using a reduced matrix size as much as healthy users did, spelling words almost 1.6 times faster and equally accurately when using the T9-like speller than when use the alternative spellers.
Habituation of P300 in the Use of P300-based Brain-Computer Interface Spellers: Individuals With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Versus Age-Matched Controls
The P300 speller could be a reliable communication device for individuals with ALS and HVs did better with the Face speller than Flash speller while the ALS group performed equally well in both spellers.


On the validity of interblock averaging of P300 in clinical settings.
P300 response: habituation.
Findings indicated that the P300 complex decreased in amplitude as a result of repeated stimulation, and the decline was logarithmic, not linear, which suggests a stabilization of the amplitude over time.
P300 response: habituation.
: This study used the "oddball" counting paradigm to examine the possible habituation of the auditory P300 response. Twenty subjects kept a mental record of the number of rarely occurring tone pips
