Turning towards a stimuli that gets your attention (dropping a book on the floor out the blue) If there are repeated presentations of this, habituation will occur. Spontaneous Recovery If there is a rest period given after habituation, this will occur in which the orienting response will be high as if it were the first time.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. The habituation process and how it relates to a bigfoot, sasquatch, and hairy man is not a quick endeavor. This process could take years and maybe decades. Slight changes to the physical environment or changes to residents living in the area could alert the biped to unusual and unfamiliar conditions that could trigger an avoidance response.
