Neuroactive! An enantioselective, catalytic synthesis strategy provides rapid access to natural-product-inspired classes of neuritogenic compounds. The goal is to find interesting chemical probes to shed light on neurodevelopmental processes and foster a better understanding of the complex biology and physiology of neuronal development and related neurodegenerative disorders.
