Abstract/Summary Axon pathfinding is an important process in the development of the nervous system. Models have been developed which describe or attempt to explain various aspects of axon pathfinding, such as axon extension, axon turning, axon guidance, interactions between axons, retinotectal mapping, and the way in which guidance cue patterns are generated in the embryo. These models generate experimentally testable predictions and also provide sophisticated frameworks from which to interpret experimental results.
