Afferent Growth Cone Interactions Control Synaptic Specificity in the Drosophila Visual System

Clandinin TR, Zipursky S Neuron. 2000 Nov;28(2):427–36 In the Drosophila compound eye, photoreceptors (R cells) that respond to light from the same point in space are distributed across the retina and connect to the same target neurons. This complex connectivity pattern reconstructs visual space in the first optic ganglion, the lamina. We have used mutations … Continue reading Afferent Growth Cone Interactions Control Synaptic Specificity in the Drosophila Visual System
