The example for neural adaptation says,
When you are exposed to a particular odour/stimuli for a very long time, (your own odour, the smell of your house and similar continuous stimuli), the receptors would hinder themselves to it and eventually ‘adapt’ to it
And for habituation,
A good example of this is our ears tuning out some of the frequently heard noise at our home.
I still don’t understand. Both are constant stimuli and how one differ from the other?
