A new mechanism for old brain wiring pair!

We have discovered a divergent molecular and cellular mechanism regulating the activity of the Robo axon guidance receptor in the fly brain suggesting that the organizational principles of neuronal circuit wiring differ between the brain and the spinal cord. Robo receptors are crucial regulators of circuit wiring in the mammalian brain, and this discovery may be relevant in that context as well.
