       Nearly every textbook with "Neurobiology" or "Neuroscience" in its
       title has a chapter devoted to this subject.
       Try G. Shepherd's "Neurobiology" (Oxford Univ Press)
       or Purves & Lichtman "Principles of Neural Development" (Sinauer)

                                                                J.A.K.
