Growth cone motility.

Author information

Neurons obtain their stereotyped morphologies and connections as a result of growth cone migration. In the past year, studies on growth cone migration and pathfinding have helped to define certain properties of cytoskeletal filaments and cell membranes that may be important in growth cone function. Antisense mRNAs have proved to be particularly useful for examining the roles of specific neurite proteins.
