Adaptation is a fundamental property of human perception. Recently, it was found that there are two opposite types of adaptation to repetitive stimuli with a temporal difference. In this article, we construct an integrative model of adaptation. We model the perception as a Bayesian inference, and represent the two types of adaptation as changes in the likelihood function and the prior distribution in the Bayesian inference. We examine our model analytically and show how the types of adaptation depend on model parameters.
