    A stimulus is what sets off a response, for example if you stood on a tack, the stimulus would be the pain from the tack peircing your foot and the response be you moving you foot away. Or puuting your handon a hot stove, the heat and pain would be trhe stimulus and you quickly taking your hand off the stove is the response.

    The stimulus is an applied input and the response is the reaction. Example: I poke someone with a needle, and they jerk away. Poking someone with the needle is the stimulus, and jerking away is the response. Example 2: The economy is bad and money is very tight. So the Federal Reserve lowers interest rates and the economy responds by creating jobs. The Fed lowering interest rates is the stimulus, and the creation of jobs is the response (one of them anyway).

    A stimulus is anything that provokes or causes a change.

    Ex: A loud noise

    A response is a reaction to a stimulus.

    Ex: Feeling anxious or a heightened arousal because of the loud noise.

    Stimulus- Loud noise

    Reponse- change in anxiety or arousal in a subject.

    a simulus is like a cause and the response is like an effect

    so the the stimulus would be hearing the phone the response is picking up the phone to answer

    a stimulus is something that ellicits a response...example, a funny movie might be a stimulus

    a response is a physical reaction to a stimulus...example, laughing because a movie was funny is a response

    Simple. An expression does not have an answer and an equation does. Expression- 9+A Equation- 9+A=10 No, you cannot solve a variable in an expression, because there is no answer to an expression! Yes, you can solve for a variable in an equation, because it has a answer!

    put your hand on hot stove eye- stimulus (something that causes something else)

    uncontrolled removal of hand from hot stove eye- response (what the stimulus caused)
