Abstract : What drives the behavior of an organism ? That fundamental question has been addressed in the literature for a variety of organisms and through different angles. For some species, part of the answer lies in the associative learning mechanisms but there also exists more widespread non-associative learning mechanisms. Habituation and Sensitization, the first translating behaviorally in a response decrease while the second in a response increase, are two such mechanisms that are so widely observed in the phylogeny that it suggests their fundamental role in behavioral learning. In this context, we propose new computational mechanisms of learning inspired by habituation and sensitization as described by biologists. These models are seen as extensions to the Iterant Deformable Sensorimotor Medium (IDSM), a conceptual model of habits formation from an artificial agent perspective as self-reinforcing sensorimotor behavioral patterns. It is an intermediate model between neuronal models and macroscopic behavior models.
