Watching neurons grow

(00:38) The Gertler lab at the Koch Institute is studying migration of neurons and their growth cones, actin-rich structures that guide developing axons and dendrites to their targets. In this video, lab members visualized dorsal root ganglia growth cones by infecting neurons with HSV-tdTomato from the McGovern/Picower viral core facility.
