Richard Durbin's Thesis - new preface

Preface

This thesis was written in 1987 and has not been updated since. The discussion of related literature is therefore severely out of date. It is being made available because it provides the primary source for quite a lot of material that was not published elsewhere, in particular concerning the early outgrowth of neurons in the ventral and dorsal cords.
