RECURRENT COLLATERAL INHIBITION

A system of negative feedback which allows Renshaw cells to inhibit a neuron by communicating through a branched axon loop returning to the cell body. This system hinders repetitive firing of a single motor neuron.

RECURRENT COLLATERAL INHIBITION: "A model of a cerebellar cortex can be employed to artificially represent recurrent collateral inhibition."
