In Neuronal Growth Cones, Phillip Gordon-Weeks explores the molecular biology of the behavior of growth cones, conical-like endings of the growing axon. He covers the basic morphology and behavior of growth cones, motility and neurite extension via the growth cone cytoskeleton, pathfinding, intracellular signaling, and synaptogenesis. A detailed, critical analysis of all aspects of growth cone biology, this incisive reference is an essential work for advanced graduate students, postgraduates, and researchers in cellular and molecular neuroscience, developmental biology, and anatomy.

Editorial Reviews

'... a rich source of information ... Each chapter, and sections within chapters, can be read in isolation making it a useful reference text.' Tom Pratt and David Price, BSDB Newsletter
