Running in the opposite direction along an axis. Thus an antidromic signal in a neuron would travel from the presynaptic region back towards the cell body, the opposite of normal.
Running in the opposite direction: most common usage is in neurophysiology for the passage of an action potential in the opposite direction to that in which it would normally travel ie. from presynaptic region towards cell body.
