  • Erol Başar
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN)


We recommend reading this chapter in parallel with Chaps. 16, 19, 21, and 25. Bullock (1993) generally discussed the psychophysiological function expectancy. The nervous system shows adaptation by preparedness in a variety of ways. This state can be passive and active; it comes from genetic factors and can be learned both for normal and unimportant input.
