    Re: What is meant by stimulus?

    A stimulus is basically considered to be a detectable change inside or outside the body. If you sit quietly for a while, and then a loud noise goes off, that is a change from the quiet state, and therefore considered a stimulus. You most likely will jump.

    But if you get used to that loud noise, then you have adapted to it and it no longer triggers a response, it is no longer a stimulus; it is not changing.

    Stimulus means Something causing or regarded as causing a response...

    A stimulus is basically considered to be a detectable change inside or outside the body. If you sit quietly for a while, and then a loud noise goes off, that is a change from the quiet state, and therefore considered a stimulus. You most likely will jump.

    Thanks...

    Hai,

    Stimulus is nothing but taking a detectable o identifiable change in and out side the world or in our body..

    Example:- If you are a calm going or reserved person who usually won't talk more..If you suddenly make louder noises o talks continuously without any reason(Unnecessarily talking) then there is having some change in your state .

    Such state of change is called as "Stimulus"

    Thumbs up Re: What is meant by stimulus?

    Hi friend,



    Well, Stimulus is something which makes you react instantly at any action.

    Like when some one brings his hands closer to to you at any moment your eyes will flap.

    OR, someone hits you when you are sleeping, you instantly jump and hit him.

    Involuntary muscles controls them and you have no command over your self,

    What happens when you see a snake?

    First moment you try to hit it, or jump or climb at higher places... That's stimulus...

    A plant(not exactly a plant, it's very small) in villages works on it named as "chui mui".



    Hope it helps!!

    hello friend..!!

    ->we ca define stimulus in many different ways because it has many meanings that are:-

    1.Stimulus is something external that influences an activity.

    2. Stimulus is a concept in behaviorism and perception.

    3.It is an input in other fields.

    Stimulus control
    ->It is said to occur when an organism behaves in one way in the presence of a given stimulus and another way in its absence.

    Proper stimulus control have four characteristics:-

    1.The behavior occurs immediately when the conditioned stimulus is given.

    2.The behavior never occurs in the absence of the stimulus.

    3.The behavior never occurs in response to some other stimulus.

    4.No other behavior occurs in response to this stimulus.

    thank u!!

    dear friend

    stimulus can be defined as the change that can be detected inside or outside of the body.



    for example :if anyone is sitting quitely in a room and if there occurs a bobm explosion outside his room then he will react instantly toward it this is called stimulus.

    our interaction to happenings in environment is called stimulus


    >>it is the first component of homeo static control system.

    hope the information is clear to you.

    all the best

    dear friend

    stimulus is something external that influences an activity.and it is a concept in behaviorism and perception.




    definition of stimulus are as below """"""""""""""""""


    It is a signal that causes an animal and man to react in some way.

    Some stimulus comes from outside the animal's body, while other stimulus, like thirst, come from inside the animal's body.
    and
    The animal's reaction to the stimulus is called a response


    thanx
