The contributions to this book, the seventh in the series, deal with cell proliferation prior to neuronal migration, cellular and molecular factors characteristic of neuronal migration, and with postmigrational neuronal and axonal plasticity. There is a section devoted to disorders of neuronal migration and plasticity and the genetics of some developmental disorders. Great strides have been made in this realitvely young branch of modern neuroscience.
