Abstract
The accessibility and simplicity of the zebrafish embryo have allowed researchers to make a detailed characterization of pathfinding by identifiable growth cones. The growth cones follow precise cell-specific pathways to their targets. Analyses of pathfinding in mutant and experimentally manipulated wild type embryos have shown that growth cones accomplish this by interacting with specific cellular cues in their environment, many of which are likely to be redundant.
