Does Television Cause The Orienting Response?

Recommended Posts

The orienting response causes an increase in adrenaline and stress.


Repeated exposure to a stimulus can cause habituation. I wonder if tv is a repeated stimulus, and thus habituation occurs. Or is every camera change a novel stimulus, so the orienting reflex is constantly triggered.
