Hi,

This is a pretty great question.

Essentially, sensitization is the opposite of habituation, in which a repeated stimulus causes a progressive response.

In trauma or wartime survivors, distant sounds of gunfire can create very strong responses even if they know they're relatively safe.

Let me know if there are follow up questions!
