The past year has witnessed remarkable progress towards understanding the molecular genetics of neuronal survival. Gene-targeting experiments in mice have confirmed the long-standing idea that the nerve growth factor model of neuronal survival--that is, neuronal dependence on target-derived molecules during a critical period in development--is broadly… CONTINUE READING
