During the development of the nervous system, neurons and glial cells (nervous system support cells) must travel considerable distances before reaching their final destination. Improper migration can be fatal or lead to several diseases. To understand genes responsible for migration in the nervous system, researchers turn to Drosophila (fruit flies). Seen here is the brain of a Drosophila larva, with pre-mature eye structures (spotted red structures in the top right and left) still attached.
