The role of migration in central nervous system neuronal development

Curr Opin Neurobiol. 1993 Feb;3(1):38-44. doi: 10.1016/0959-4388(93)90033-u.


The past year has seen the emergence of significant new information on the control of neurogenesis and migration, and the establishment of neuronal identity in three systems: developing cerebellum, cortex, and optic tectum. These findings have important implications for the role of glial-guided migrations in central nervous system neuronal development.
