Do-it-yourself Tiling: Dendritic Growth in the Absence of Homotypic Contacts

Mary A Logan et al. Neuron. .

Abstract

Many subtypes of neurons are precisely arranged with little overlap of their dendritic arbors, which has been suggested to arise due to homotypic dendritic repulsion. In this issue of Neuron, Lin et al. demonstrate that subtypes of retinal ganglion cells establish normal dendritic field sizes and morphologies in the absence of contact with cells of the same class.
