There are a number of relevent meanings related to the tendency to persist :

  • Uncontrollable repetition of a particular response, such as a word, phrase, or gesture, despite the absence or cessation of a stimulus, usually caused by brain injury or other neurological disorder.
  • The tendency for a memory or idea to be maintained without any obvious stimulus for it. This implies internal mechanisms for the persistence of the phenomena (eg defence mechanism) and usually carries a negative connotation.
