Abstract: The focus of the introductory talk will be on mechanisms controlling interneuron (cIN) migration and axon targeting. We will provide evidence that different classes of cINs use distinct routes of migration to reach the cortex, that define the IN-subtype specific axonal pattern and function. We suggest that migration and axon targeting programmes are coupled to optimize the assembly of inhibitory circuits in the cerebral cortex.
