Sariah enters a room with several chirping crickets in it. upon first entering the room, sariah can hear the chirping; however, as she begins to talk to her friends, she is no longer aware of the chirping even though it is still there. the fact that sariah no longer perceives the chirping sound demonstrates sensory
SENSORY ADAPTATION refers to a phenomenon whereby human sensitivity to a stimulus is reduced due to constantly being exposed to it because the body has adapted to it.
For example, when a really hot summer first hits and everyone is sweating and complaining about the heat but a few days later don't complain as much. That is SENSORY ADAPTATION and that is what Sariah just experienced.
a. sensory adaptation
Sensory adaptation -
It refers to the adaptation of any stimulus , with continuous subjection , is referred to as sensory adaptation .
The senses of the body reduces to react or feel any stimuli on the regular exposure or regular usage of it .
For example ,
Listening to the same thing again and again makes the body resistive for it .
Hence , from the given scenario of the question ,
The correct answer is a. sensory adaptation .
Sensory adaptation it's when the sensitivity to a stimulus decreases as a consequence of constant exposure to the stimulus.
When the stimulus starts, the neurons will begin firing action potentials. After a while in the same environment, you'll most likely have forgotten all about that sensation (in this case noise) even though the stimulus is exactly the same.
