something that creates growth or excitement, or something that causes an action
The exact meaning depends upon context. For example:
- economic stimulus — something that makes the economy grow
- biological or psychological stimulus — something that makes the body react in a particular way such as when more light make the eye pupil shrink, or when lack of sleep causes stress
- It was indeed but a passing trance, that only made me feel with renewed acuteness so soon as, the unnatural stimulus ceasing to operate, I had returned to my old habits.
