It has long been thought that the same molecules guide both trunk neural crest cells and motor axons as these cell types grow and extend to their target regions in developing embryos. There are common territories that are navigated by these cell types: both cells grow through the rostral portion of the somitic sclerotomes and avoid the caudal half of the sclerotomes. However, these cell types seem to use different molecules to guide them to their target regions. In this review, I will talk about the common and distinct methods of migration taken by trunk neural crest cells and motor axons as they grow and populate their target regions through chick embryos at the level of the trunk.
