The growth and function of axons.‚ÄČThe process of neurogenesis provides pools of neurons that migrate into their appropriate positions (left), that extend axons along reproducible paths (middle), and that are eventually wired up into the synaptic circuits which convey information across the nervous system, thus coordinating behavior (orange arrows: action potentials; yellow: presynaptic sides).
