The immediate surface of the white substance beneath the pia mater is formed by a con-densed tract of neuroglia, the subpial layer, from .020-.040 mm. in thickness, that is devoid ofnervous elements and forms the definite outer boundary of the cord. This zone consists of adense interlacement of circular, longitudinal and radial neuroglia fibrils among which numer-ous glia cells are embedded. From the deeper surface of th
