Abstract

This study has experimentally measured growth cone motility under several conditions involving the extracellular matrix substrates, collagen and laminin, in uniform or patterned arrangements to provide insight into the mechanisms by which the growth cone guides axonal extension in the embryo and thus mechanisms that may be exploited to enhance nerve regeneration. Moreover, a simulation model of growth cone dynamics is also developed to help quantitate these effects.
