Brain Wiring in the Fourth Dimension

Mathias F. Wernet, Claude Desplan

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


In this issue of Cell, Langen et al. use time-lapse multiphoton microscopy to show how Drosophila photoreceptor growth cones find their targets. Based on the observed dynamics, they develop a simple developmental algorithm recapitulating the highly complex connectivity pattern of these neurons, suggesting a basic framework for establishing wiring specificity.
