ABSTRACT
A new study describes cellular mechanisms establishing synaptic specificity during development and remodeling of a zebrafish mechanosensory organ. Coordination amongst postsynaptic neurons and interactions between presynaptic and postsynaptic cells together promote the segregation of circuits responding to distinct sensory stimuli.
