    How is it possible to explain with the help of modern neurophysiology, that the emotional or psychological response of a human to the same stimulus typically becomes less and less sharp with time? For example, some person could watch a very interesting movie and enjoy it quite a lot. But if he watched the same movie 100 times in a row, it likely wouldn't be as interesting and enjoyment may turn to boredom. Some people may get bored with their spouses with time. Or some person may have a favorite dish. But if he will eat only the same dish every day and for a whole year... Probably he will start to hate it. What exactly happens to the brain? Is there any theoretical way to reverse this process completely? Would it require memory erasial?

    The so-called neuron doctrine merely states that nerves are made up of individual cells connected via synapses. It was formulated around the start of the c.20th and was finally confirmed in the 1950s.

    It does not set out to explain memory or arousal in the brain. Obviously.

    I've changed "neuron doctrin" to "neurophysiology".
