Habituation is a decrease in response to a stimulus after repeated presentations As a procedure, habituation is the repeated presentation of an eliciting stimulus that results in the decline of the elicited behavior (the process of habituation). This can be rooted from one becoming accustomed to a stimulus to such an extent, that they are simply less responsive or reactive to the stimulus. This process is gradual and is caused after prolonged exposure to the said stimulus. This can include an old ring tone which may not grab our attention quicker than a new ring tone to which we are not well-adapted.
