1. 1. Reception of stimulus

1.1. detected through

2. 2. Modulation

2.1. stimulus signal received by

2.1.2.1. Thalamus

2.1.3. express genes for

2.1.3.1. Parvalbumin proteins

3. 3. Effectors

3.1. Habituation response produced by

3.1.1. Motor Neurons

3.1.1.1. Express GABA receptor genes

3.1.1.2. in the

3.1.1.2.1. Motor cortex

3.1.1.3. become less likely to "fire"

3.1.1.3.1. causing a reduced or absent response to the stimuli....
