Dynamical Mechanisms for Axon Guidance in the Presence of Skeletal Elements

Diffusible and contact chemoattractants have been implicated in the establishment of connections between neurons and their targets in a developing nervous system. We will describe simulations of these mechanisms for a whole sequence of events including nerve guidance, bundling, pathfinding, and debundling of axons with specific reference to the influence of internal skeletal structures on their growth and form.
