Spiral Ganglion Neurons (green) innervating the mouse organ of Corti must navigate a complex field of cochlear supporting  cells (magenta) before reaching their inner and outer hair cell targets. Supporting cells act as trailblazes to provide directional cues that  direct peripheral axons of Type II Spiral Ganglion Neurons to turn towards the cochlear base thereby coordinating innervation with cochlear  tonotopy. For more information see the review article by Deans et al., pages 1-4 in this issue. Photo credit: Satish R. Ghimire, PhD
