Neuronal death in the development of the vertebrate central nervous system
Seminars in the Neurosciences
Neuronal death occurs naturally in the development of the vertebrate central nervous system, deleting large numbers of neurons at the time when afferent and efferent connections are being formed. It is these that regulate it, by means of anterograde and retrograde survival signals that depend on trophic molecules and electrical activity. Possible roles include the regulation of neuronal numbers (numerical matching) and the elimination of axonal targeting errors.
