Pioneering work in vertebrate neural development.


Control of directional axon growth is fundamental to correct wiring in the nervous system, and glia are thought to play an important role. New work in the zebrafish lateral line shows that glia are not required for axonal pathfinding but are required for normal mature nerve organization.
