Conserved cues for axon and dendrite growth in the developing cortex

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

22 Scopus citations


The cellular and molecular mechanisms that guide axonal and dendritic differentiation in the cerebral cortex are just beginning to be defined. Many of the molecular signals that guide axons also, and sometimes simultaneously, influence dendritic growth. Whitford et al. (2002 [this issue of Neuron]) demonstrate that in addition to their roles in axon guidance and cell migration cue, Slit proteins can also regulate dendritic growth.
