During development, guidance molecules play a key role in the formation of complex circuits required for neural functions. With the cessation of development, this exuberant growth process slows and stabilizes, and inhibitory molecules expressed by glia prevent initial attempts for axonal regeneration. In this review, we discuss the expression patterns and relative contribution of several guidance molecules on the regenerative process. Injury to the immature CNS or species capable of… CONTINUE READING
