FACILITATION

is the change or difference in the strength of a stimulus which follows a potentially weaker stimulus at a neuron. These increases in strength are typically the result of environmental factors.

FACILITATION: "Some stimuli in the human body are simply too weak to solicit a response, facilitation is the process of increasing the severity of the stimuli in order to elicit a response."
