We have studied the morphology of embryonic chick retinal and sympathetic growth cones as they meet retinal and sympathetic neurites grown in culture. Growth cones preserve their normal morphology and ability to locomote when retinal growth cones contact retinal neurites or when sympathetic growth cones contact sympathetic neurites. Growth cones collapse and their motility ceases when retinal growth cones contact sympathetic neurites or when sympathetic growth cones contact retinal neurites… CONTINUE READING
