Why do we become bored of stimuli after multiple exposes to it?
Why do we become bored of songs, films, stories, jokes, food after having listening to it or having exposures to it multiples times?
Why is it when our cortex becomes adequate at predicting the outcomes of a song, film, joke does that make it less enjoyable? And if so what is the neuroscience behind this phenomena that stops our pleasure center being activated? I get the evolutionary aspect of why this maybe the case but I wanted more detail on the neuroscience side.
