Some axons follow the same circuitous route to their target in every member of a species, rather than growing directly to the target. Not enough genes to account for a different chemical tag for every neuron to reach its proper location. Blue Print Hypothesis. .. The undeveloped nervous system contains specific chemical or Pioneer axons mechanical trails that growing axons follow to their destinations. Experiment: Pioneer axons in fish destroyed,
