Neural patterning is the biological process by which cells in the developing nervous system acquire distinct identities according to their specific spatial positions. Neural patterning is controlled by the combinatorial actions of signalling gradients along the dorso–ventral, antero–posterior and left–right axis of the developing nervous system.
