Neurons are one of the most polarized cell types in the body. During the past three decades, many researchers have attempted to understand the mechanisms of neuronal polarization using cultured neurons. Although these studies have succeeded in discovering the various signal molecules that regulate neuronal polarization, one major question remains unanswered: how do neurons polarize in vivo?
