Sensitization

 
Sensitization is functionally the opposite of habituation, in that it can be defined as the enhancement of a reflex response by the introduction of a strong or noxious stimulus. It differs from habituation in that the sensitizing stimulus is different from the stimulus that elicits the reflex.

Perhaps importantly, there is no specificity in sensitization. There is a general arousal of the entire nervous system and all reflex pathways are strengthened.
