During the development of the mammalian central nervous system (CNS), neurons are commonly generated at sites far from their final locations. They migrate to an anlage before differentiating into their final morphology and making synaptic connections. This chapter reviews the basic principles of radial and tangential migration, molecular events underlying normal neuronal migration, and some molecular defects that disturb neuronal migration to cause neurological disorders.

Keywords:   central nervous system, neurons, neuronal migration, tangential migration, radial migration
