Abstract

Abstract Regeneration of mammalian peripheral nervous system axons is thought to be random, while regeneration of the frog optic nerve is thought to be highly specific. This article reviews the results of a number of experiments using these two model systems. There appear to be more similarities than differences in axonal regeneration in these systems when axonal guidance and target recognition are examined separately.
