Kinetochore-microtubule attachments are essential to direct proper chromosome segregation during cell division. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Cheerambathur et al. (2019) and Zhao et al. (2019) uncover an unexpected role in neuronal development, unrelated to cell division, for components of the highly conserved kinetochore-microtubule attachment complex.
