Abstract Studies on a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate nervous systems point to the existence of specific chemical cues for both growth cone guidance and target recognition. Open questions, however, include how many recognition labels and how specific is their expression? Here we review our recent studies on insect embryos aimed at trying to answer these questions, focusing in particular on the specificity of two identified growth cones (aCC and pCC) in the CNS of the grasshopper and… CONTINUE READING
