Repulsion is an important mechanism controlling nerve growth. We are investigating axon-repulsive systems in the developing chick embryo (somites, regulating spinal nerve segmentation) and adult mammalian brain (astrocytes, regulating synaptic plasticity), and are assessing whether these systems also block regeneration of injured CNS axons.
