What is facilitation?

Facilitation is any activity that makes an action or a process easy or easier. For example:

  • Facilitation is used in business and organisational settings to ensure the designing and running of successful meetings and workshops.
  • Neural facilitation in neuroscience is the increase in postsynaptic potential evoked by a 2nd impulse.
  • Ecological facilitation describes how an organism profits from the presence of another. Examples are nurse plants, which provide shade for new seedlings or saplings (e.g. using an orange tree to provide shade for a newly planted coffee plant), or plants giving shelter from wind chill in arctic environments.
