The role of axon guidance molecules

 

Alain Chédotal is interested in deciphering how one hand migrating neurons and on the other hand neuron extensions to establish connections between one another (axons) are guided in the developing brain. He is also working with his team on new technologies allowing the visualization of developing neurons. Their research should determine whether molecules involved in axonal guidance are also players of diseases of the visual system or demyelinating pathologies like multiple sclerosis or certain cancers.
