This book came out of a meeting on neural development organized by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and most of the contributors are institute investigators who have been at the forefront of recent advances in this field. Unlike other books that arise out of symposia, with only a few exceptions the authors have not limited themselves to narrow discussions of the work from their own laboratories, but rather have produced comprehensive reviews of the areas in which each has been active. This is attested by the average chapter length, which approaches 40 pages.
