The lowest level at which an individual can experience a sensation.
“ Getting used to” certain sensations; becoming accommodated to a certain level of stimulation.
The minimal difference that can be detected between two stimuli. Also known as the j.n.d. ( just noticeable difference ).
A theory concerning the perceived differentiation between similar stimuli of varying intensities (i.e., the stronger the initial stimulus, the greater the additional intensity needed for the second stimulus to be perceived as different).
