A major mode of organisation of neurons in vertebrate brains juxtaposes functionally related neurons into three dimensional clusters known as neuronal nuclei. Relatively little is known about how these clusters form during embryo development. During my talk, I shall discuss evidence that the combinatorial expression of multiple members of the cadherin family of cell adhesion molecules drives specificity of formation of neuronal nuclei. I shall illustrate this using three types of neuronal nuclei, spinal and cranial motor neurons and the brainstem neurons that birds use to calculate the location of a sound source in the horizontal plane.
