Abstract

An analysis of the central projection of various sensory neurones in the homoeotic mutant bithorax postbithorax, and in flies where an adult nerve had been experimentally misrouted, reveals that neurones are able to develop a normal projection even if they enter the central nervous system at an unusual place.
