Definitions for "Inhibition"
The act of inhibiting, or the state of being inhibited; restraint; prohibition; embargo.
A writ from a higher court forbidding an inferior judge from further proceedings in a cause before; esp., a writ issuing from a higher ecclesiastical court to an inferior one, on appeal.
The restraint, suppression, or arrest of a process or the action of a particular cell or organ; the prevention or slowing of the rate of a chemical or an organic reaction. The term "reciprocal inhibition" refers to the restraint or "checking" of one group of muscles upon stimulation (excitation) and contraction of their opposing (antagonist) muscles.
A stopping or checking of an already present action; a restraining of the function of an organ, or an agent, as a digestive fluid or enzyme, etc.; as, the inhibition of the respiratory center by the pneumogastric nerve; the inhibition of reflexes, etc.
Latin inhibitus = restrained, hence, reduction of the excitability of a synapse.
In social psychology, the restraining effect on the individual of the presence of others when they are performing certain tasks, which stems from their apprehension at being evaluated by the other
The reduction in rate or stopping of a chemical or biochemical reaction, due to interaction with a chemical agent.
Process of extinguishing fire by the use of an agent that interrupts the chemical reactions in the combustion process.
A chemical compound that has the effect of blocking or slowing a biological process, for example an enzymatic reaction.
Inhibitory synaptic transmission
In reference to neurons, it is a synaptic message that prevents the recipient cell from firing.
One of the responses caused by specific neurotransmitters binding to receptors on a neuron. Inhibition decreases the probability that neurotransmitters will be released by the neuron.
The positioning of a patient's limbs to discourage muscle tightness.
Movements and positioning which discourages muscle tightness; also decreasing the sensitivity of nervous tissue to stimulation.
The tendency of early successional species to resist the invasion of later species.
tendency to perform a behaviour is reduced when others are doing it - eg. mating inhibits a third person joining
A decrease in enzyme activity. Note: a decrease in actual enzyme levels is called suppression.
A type of pacemaker response in which the output pulse is suppressed (or inhibited) when an intrinsic event is sensed during the alert interval .
The process whereby an activity is decreased.
(physiology) the process whereby nerves can retard or prevent the functioning of an organ or part; "the inhibition of the heart by the vagus nerve"
The interference with or prevention of a response despite the presents of appropriate stimulus.
Alexander is referring to the neural functions of inhibition and exitation which balance each other in movement in a well tuned being.
Soothing or arresting a process of function.
