This and other pieces in Kater & Letourneau describe electrical properties that affect the navigation of growing nerve fibers. The purposefulness of the process may preclude randomness that was long thought to be the way the network of neurons formed in the brain. These electrical influences that direct cell growth may also give clues to learning.
