The authors draw together a n extensive literature on cellular development and structural morpholo gy, biochemical and genetic events and hypotheses that have been subje ct to mathematical modelling. Important metholdogies, such as transgen ics and formal modelling, are explained for the non-specialist. Major future challenges are clearly identified. This is a unique contributio n to the literature, combining the fundamentals of experimental develo pmental neurobiology with accessible neural modelling. It will be esse ntial reading for neuroscientists in general as well as those with a p articular interest in development.
