Figure 4

Pioneers and their followers in the developing ventral nerve cord (after Durbin 1987; Garriga et al. 1993a). (a) AVG has pioneered the right tract, and PVP and PVQ growth cones extend anteriorly. Motor neurons in the right tract are omitted for clarity. (b) Removing PVPR causes PVQL to decussate; (c) removing PVQL has no effect on PVPR; (d) AVK growth cones extend posteriorly; (e) HSN growth cones extend anteriorly; (f) removing PVPR and PVQL causes the HSNL to decussate.
