Abstract: Neurons are a primary functional component of the brain and nervous system. During development, axons explore their surrounding and form synapses with dendrites of other neurons. The growth of the axon is directed by numerous mechanical and chemical cues, which have not been described in a fully quantitative model. Here the Fokker-Planck equation and a... read more
