Abstract

In the present study the authors have been able to demonstrate on cats that the decrease in responses of medial pontomedullary neurons during repetitive stimulation conforms to most of the parametric features of behavioral habituating systems. The response of these neurons to repetitive cutaneous and vestibular stimulation, therefore, appears to represent a neural analog of habituation.
