Abstract/Summary The growth and guidance of axons is an undertaking of both great complexity and great precision, involving processes at a range of length and time scales. Correct axonal guidance involves directing the tips of individual axons and their branches, interactions between branches of a single axon, and interactions between axons of different neurons. In this chapter, we describe examples of models operating at and between each of these scales.
