This chapter considers how growth cone motility and changes in the neuronal cytoskeleton are modulated by cues from the local environment. It begins by examining the mechanisms by which positive and negative environmental cues guide growing axons. It then discusses the various intrinsic and extrinsic factors that can modulate changes in axonal caliber. Finally, the chapter examines the critical role of axonal environments in neuronal survival and axonal regeneration after injury.

Keywords:   growth cone motility, neuronal cytoskeleton, axonal environment, axons, axonal regeneration
