The directed and stereotypical growth of axons to their synaptic targets is a crucial phase of neural circuit formation. Many axons in the developing vertebrate and invertebrate central nervous systems (CNSs), including those that remain on their own (ipsilateral), and those that cross over to the opposite (commissural), side of the midline project over long distances along the anterior-posterior (A-P) body axis within precisely positioned longitudinally oriented tracts to facilitate the… CONTINUE READING
