Following a distal stimulation of a motor fibre, only a fraction of spinal motoneurons are able to produce a re-excitation of the initial segment leading to an orthodromically conducted action potential, known as recurrent discharge. In order to show the reciprocal interplay of the axonal initial segment and the soma leading to recurrent discharge in detail, a reduced model of a cat spinal motoneuron was developed.
