Abstract : The function of Renshaw antidromic inhibition in the activity of the spinal centers was investigated. It is suggested that there is a link between the rhythm of discharge of the single motoneurons of the spinal cord, the silent period in the muscle and the Renshaw antidromic inhibition. This last is presumably the main controlling mechanism for the efferent activity of the spinal centers, and it seems responsible for their low frequency of discharge.
