The brain is constructed with an enormous variety of neurons. Their precise connections are the basis for the complex brain function such as behavior and mental activities. Accomplishment of a fully functional brain entails orchestrated developmental processes including neuronal differentiation, migration, axon outgrowth, and target recognition.

We are focusing on the following features.
