The spiral ganglia of adult cats contain desmosome-like junctions between lamellae of perikaryal or axonal myelin, between Schwann cell and neuronal plasmalemma, and between the perikaryon of myelinated neurons and cellular structures not identified as to cellular origin. The possibility exists that the unidentified cellular structures observed may be part of another neuron, thus forming a means by which neurons in a spiral ganglion can communicate.
