|Abstract:||The fine structure of spinal ganglia from seven slow lorises (Nycticebus coucang coucang) was studied following perfusion fixation using different concentrations of glutaraldehyde and post fixation in 1% osmic acid. Two cell types, one light (63%) and the other dark (37%) were reported out of the total number of 425 neurons counted. Almost all the light cells containd filamentous mitochondria, whereas only 35% of the dark cells contained filamentous mitochondria, the other 65% having vacuolated mitochondria. The significance of this mitochondrial variation in the spinal ganglion cells of the slow loris is undecided.|
