Obviously ULISSES means "neuronal migration", which is the process by which
postmitotic neurons migrate from the site of their "production" (e.g. the
paraventricular zone) to their final position, either within the brain
(e.g. various layers of the developing neocortex) or in peripheral ganglia.
A recent review appered this month on TINS:

Perris R. (1996) Extracellular matrix in neural crest-cell migration.
Trends Neurosci. 20, 23-31.

Hope this helps.
