The neuronal growth cone plays a fundamental role in nerve development and regeneration. A sensory-motile structure, it determines the path of axonal extension through its interactions with the extracellular environment, ultimately directing the formation of functional connections in the nervous system. Though several mechanisms of interaction have been proposed, these have been difficult to describe quantitatively due to the complexity of growth cone behavior, as manifested in the randomly and… CONTINUE READING
