Abstract

The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans provides an excellent model system in which to study the mechanisms involved in the development of the nervous system. Mutation analyses have now identified several genes that appear to be important in the interaction of neuroblasts and axons with both guidance cues and their target cells.
