    Kids, today we gonna learn two new words.

    STIMULI and RESPONSE

    So, what is Stimuli ? and whst is Response?

    Let’s define Stimuli:

    Stimuli are changes that occur around us in the environment.

    Hey doc, the words changes around us sound deep.

    Ok, ok. Let me give you guys some example of changes a.k.a Stimuli
    Stimuli is known to us as touch, pain, heat, cold, sounds, food (chemicals) and light.

    Let me further explain the stimuli to you.
    – You feel and touch objects, that is a stimuli
    – You look at things around you, that is a stimuli
    – You feel cold, or hot, that is a stimuli
    – You feel pain whe you fall down, that is a stimuli
    – You hear sound, that is a stimuli
    – You taste a burger, that is a stimuli

    By now you should know what is astimuli. But, in our daily life, we deal with millions of stimuli and we call that Stimulus, which mean a lot of stimuli or plural form of stimuli.

    When a stimuli or stimulus come to us. We response to it or them.
    For every stimuli there is a response to it weather we aware or not. For example, when we touch anything hot like iron, we will feel pain. The response would be pulling back the hand to avoid pain.

    Human need to respond to stimuli in order to protect themselves from danger or for survival.

    For example:

    Stimuli Responses
    Stepping on sharp objects like thumbtacks

    Stepping on sharp objects like thumbtacks

    Stepping on sharp objects, we quickly pull away our foot

    We quickly pull away our foot

    Smelling bad smells

    Covering nose quickly to keep out the bad smells
