Neuronal migration is, along with axon guidance, one of the fundamental mechanisms underlying the wiring of the brain. As other organs, the nervous system has acquired the ability to grow both in size and complexity by using migration as a strategy to position cell types from different origins into specific coordinates, allowing for the generation of brain circuitries. Guidance of migrating neurons shares many features with axon guidance, from the use of substrates to the specific cues regulating chemotaxis. There are, however, important differences in the cell biology of these two processes. The most evident case is nucleokinesis, which is an essential component of migration that needs to be integrated within the guidance of the cell. Perhaps more surprisingly, the cellular mechanisms underlying the response of the leading process of migrating cells to guidance cues might be different to those involved in growth cone steering, at least for some neuronal populations. The migration of newly born neurons is a precisely regulated process that is critical for the development of brain architecture.
The genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of neural development are essential for understanding evolution and disorders of neural systems. Recent advances in genetic, molecular, and cell biological methods have generated a massive increase in new information, but there is a paucity of comprehensive and up-to-date syntheses, references, and historical perspectives on this important subject. The Comprehensive Developmental Neuroscience series is designed to fill this gap, offering the most thorough coverage of this field on the market today and addressing all aspects of how the nervous system and its components develop. Each volume in the series consists of review style articles that average pp and feature numerous illustrations and full references. Series offers articles for full color pages addressing ways in which the nervous system and its components develop Features leading experts in various subfields as Section Editors and article Authors All articles peer reviewed by Section Editors to ensure accuracy, thoroughness, and scholarship Volume 2 sections include coverage of mechanisms which regulate: the formation of axons and dendrites, cell migration, synapse formation and maintenance during development, and neural activity, from cell-intrinsic maturation to early correlated patterns of activity.
Many neurons resemble other cells in developing embryos in migrating long distances before they differentiate. However, despite shared basic machinery, neurons differ from other migrating cells. Most dramatically, migrating neurons have a long and dynamic leading process, and may extend an axon from the rear while they migrate. Neurons must coordinate the extension and branching of their leading processes, cell movement with axon specification and extension, switching between actin and microtubule motors, and attachment and recycling of diverse adhesion proteins. New research is needed to fully understand how migration of such morphologically complicated cells is coordinated over space and time. Nervous systems are the organs through which animals perceive, interpret, and respond to the world around them. They consist of specialized, electrically active cells connected together in networks.

Neuronal migration is a fundamental process in central nervous system CNS development. The assembly of functioning neuronal circuits relies on neuronal migration occurring in the appropriate spatio-temporal pattern. A defect in the neuronal migration may result in a neurological disorder. The cerebellum, as a part of the CNS, plays a pivotal role in motor coordination and non-motor functions such as emotion, cognition and language. The excitatory and inhibitory neurons within the cerebellum originate from different distinct germinal zones and migrate through complex routes to assemble in a well-defined neuronal organization in the cerebellar cortex and nuclei.
The development of the nervous system , or neural development , or neurodevelopment , refers to the processes that generate, shape, and reshape the nervous system of animals, from the earliest stages of embryonic development to adulthood. The field of neural development draws on both neuroscience and developmental biology to describe and provide insight into the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which complex nervous systems develop, from nematodes and fruit flies to mammals. Defects in neural development can lead to malformations such as holoprosencephaly , and a wide variety of neurological disorders including limb paresis and paralysis , balance and vision disorders, and seizures ,  and in humans other disorders such as Rett syndrome , Down syndrome and intellectual disability. The vertebrate central nervous system CNS is derived from the ectoderm —the outermost germ layer of the embryo. A part of the dorsal ectoderm becomes specified to neural ectoderm — neuroectoderm that forms the neural plate along the dorsal side of the embryo. The neural groove forms along the long axis of the neural plate, and the neural plate folds to give rise to the neural tube. These simple, early vesicles enlarge and further divide into the telencephalon future cerebral cortex and basal ganglia , diencephalon future thalamus and hypothalamus , mesencephalon future colliculi , metencephalon future pons and cerebellum , and myelencephalon future medulla.

Our laboratory has developed an in vitro model system in which glial-guided neuronal migration can be observed in real time. Cerebellar granule neurons migrate on astroglial fibers by apposing their cell soma against the glial arm, forming a specialized migration junction, and extending a motile leading process in the direction of migration. In vitro assays indicate that the neuronal antigen astrotactin functions as a neuron-glia ligand, and is likely to play a role in the movement of neurons along glial fibers. In heterotypic recombinations of neurons and glia from mouse cerebellum and rat hippocampus, neurons migrate on heterotypic glial processes with a cytology, speed and mode of movement identical to that of neuronal migration on homotypic glial fibers, suggesting that glial fibers provide a permissive pathway for neuronal migration in developing brain.
In those silly movie star sunglasses, she still got a couple of lucky hits. His knuckles turned white as he tightened his grip on the steering wheel. It was as if something were eating away at his gut, sharp teeth gnawing at him.
- Сьюзан шумно выдохнула и повернулась к. - Я думаю, - начала она, -что я только… -но слова застряли у нее в горле. Она побледнела. - Что с тобой? - удивленно спросил Хейл. Сьюзан встретилась с ним взглядом и прикусила губу.
Хейл решил выйти подышать воздухом, за что она была ему безмерно благодарна. Однако одиночество не принесло ей успокоения. В голове у Сьюзан беспрестанно крутилась мысль о контактах Танкадо с Хейлом. Кто будет охранять охранников. - подумала .
И что же, - спросила Мидж, - это и есть искомый ключ. - Наверняка, - объявил Бринкерхофф. Фонтейн молча обдумывал информацию.
Повсюду мелькали красно-бело-синие прически. Беккер вздохнул, взвешивая свои возможности. Где ей еще быть в субботний вечер. Проклиная судьбу, он вылез из автобуса.
Сьюзан Флетчер, я люблю. Будьте моей женой. Она подняла голову.
Останься со мной, - увещевал ее голос. - Я залечу твои раны. Она безуспешно пыталась высвободиться. - Я сделал это ради нас обоих. Мы созданы друг для друга.
Стоя возле креста, он слушал, как приближаются шаги Халохота, смотрел на распятие и проклинал судьбу.
Дай Бог, чтобы телефон работал, мысленно взмолился Беккер. Двигаясь к будке, он нащупывал в кармане деньги. Нашлось 75 песет никелевыми монетками, сдача от поездки в такси, - достаточно для двух местных звонков. Он вежливо улыбнулся озабоченной медсестре и вошел в будку.
За дверью. - Да, конечно… сэр. - Сьюзан не знала, как. Бросила взгляд на монитор, потом посмотрела на Грега Хейла. - Сейчас.
Сьюзан шла вперед, повторяя это имя, ее глаза неотрывно смотрели на экран. - Дэвид! - воскликнула она, еле держась на ногах. - О, Дэвид… как они могли… Фонтейн растерялся: - Вы знаете этого человека.
Чед, список будет распечатан в течение тридцати секунд. Вот мои условия. Ты даешь мне ключ.
