Combining whole-mount immunocytochemistry with tissue-clearing and light-sheet microscopy 3D analysis of embryonic and fetal specimens, we now seek to decipher the mechanisms ruling the organization of the human nervous system and associated tissues; to reconstitute the embryonic landscape of axon guidance cues, and to enhance our understanding of neuronal fate allocation and brain patterning. This project is a decisive progress towards grasping the etiology of congenital neuropathies.
