Kaur et al. show that the radial glial scaffold of neural stem cells from medial ganglionic eminence directs corticospinal and other axons through a previously unknown choice point at the striatopallidal junction in an RND3/ARHGAP35-dependent manner. Within corticospinal neurons, FEZF2-dependent Rnd3 expression regulates dendritic spinogenesis, axon elongation, and pontine midline crossing.
