Command to Implement new settings w/o re-logging in...

ya know how when you put an alias in your .profile (if you're using bash) of your home directory and want to be able to use that alias automatically? I know there's a command which reloads your settings into the system thus making it so that you don't have to logout and login again to have these settings take affect. Does anyone know this command?
