Neuronal Tract Tracing

A major goal of neuroscience studies is to explore connections between specific types of neurons and the functions of these connections in the nervous system. Most of what we know today about the pathways and cross pathway connections of neurons has been discovered by using neuronal tract tracing techniques. Neuronal tract tracing technique was developed based on two principles, Wallerian degeneration and axon flow theory, and has been enhanced by knocking in an enhancer or inhibitor to a chain of neurons in studying specific pathways with molecular biological functionality.
