    If you hear a loud noise you are startled. If you hear that noise again within the present, you will, again, be startled, but not as much. Again, and you will be startled even less. This is habituation. Now, researchers are beginning to explore the molecular mechanisms underlying it. In this case, for habituating sounds.
