(Redirected to Antidromic article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An antidromic impulse in an axon refers to conduction opposite to the normal, orthodromic direction. That is, it refers to conduction along the axon toward the cell body, instead of conduction from the cell body out to the axon terminals. For most neurons, their dendrites, soma, or axons are depolarized forming an action potential that moves from the starting point of the depolarization (near the cell body) along the axons of the neuron.
