Inhibition in the Center and the Periphery
It is a special pleasure to be able to discuss a subject to which Kees Wiersma has made such a remarkable series of pioneering contributions. The phenomenon of peripheral inhibition is now what Kees will not become for another decade, an obstinate octagenarian. It continues to pose questions we cannot answer: What are the functional roles of the pre- and postsynaptic varieties of inhibition? What is the mechanism of the farmer? Why is it used in some places and not in others? Why couldn’t arthropods have done without it altogether?
