Branch management: mechanisms of axon branching in the developing vertebrate CNS

  title={Branch management: mechanisms of axon branching in the developing vertebrate CNS},
  author={Katherine Kalil and Erik W. Dent},
  journal={Nature Reviews Neuroscience},
The remarkable ability of a single axon to extend multiple branches and form terminal arbors enables vertebrate neurons to integrate information from divergent regions of the nervous system. Axons select appropriate pathways during development, but it is the branches that extend interstitially from the axon shaft and arborize at specific targets that are responsible for virtually all of the synaptic connectivity in the vertebrate CNS. How do axons form branches at specific target regions… CONTINUE READING
