Abstract

Why did the axon cross the midline? A 1993 paper by Corey Goodman and colleagues described a genetic screen in fruit flies that pioneered the discovery of conserved families of axon guidance cues and receptors, highlighting fundamental processes underlying wiring specificity in the developing nervous system.
