comment How does an axon “know” it's not connecting to its own neuron?
@Lennart_96 I'm not a particular expert on neurodevelopment, but it seemed to me that they pretty much grew in many random directions. There were no extracellular matrix or chemicals that would give an overall structural guide to the neurons (though there were glia multiplying simultaneously).

comment How do cats shed their fur?
I would agree if it were only for OP. But what about all the other people who come to Bio.SE to get an answer to this question? For the health of this community, I think having a tiny bit more detail would be a good thing.

@Lennart_96 that study was done with dissociated cortical culture; they formed random connections. (I happened to work with both authors, and did some modeling study myself, but not on the neurodevelopment side.)

It would be extra helpful if you could summarize the content of the links in your response. :)

Can you give us citations on the study you mentioned?
