Antidromic conduction is seen in:



A Axon
B Synapse

C Both
D None

Ans. A Axon

In lying animals impulses normally pass in one direction along the axons and this conduction is called orthodromic conduction. Antidromic means that the nerve impulse travels in the opposite direction and it is seen in axons. Synapses are one way as receptors are present only on post synaptic neuron.
