The grasshopper embryo has been used as a convenient system with which to investigate mechanisms of axonal navigation and pathway formation at the level of individual nerve cells. Here, we focus on the developing antenna of the grasshopper embryo (Schistocerca gregaria) where two siblings of pioneer neurons establish the first two axonal pathways to the CNS… CONTINUE READING
