1. Induction and patterning of a neuron-forming (neurogenic)
region (Derived from ectodermal cells; regulated by spatial /
temporal pattern of gene expression)
2. Birth and migration of immature neurons and glia
3. Specification of cell fates (differentiation; acquisition of
identity)
4. Guidance of axonal growth cones to specific targets
5. Formation/establishment of synaptic connections
6. Binding of trophic factors for survival and differentiation
7. Competitive rearrangement of functional synapses
