General Principles Question 1
In sensory physiology, adaptation is defined as: Answer
- the evolution of a receptor that responds to one stimulus modality more than any others.
- a decrease in the response of a receptor or sensory neuron with time, despite the presence of a stimulus that is unchanging in amplitude.
- the perception of any stimulus as if it was the adequate stimulus.
- the difference between sensation and perception.
a change in the threshold for a receptor potential that results in an “all-or-none” response.
