Abstract

1. 1. The lipid content of the cerebral hemisphere of the miniature pig (Sus scrofa) has been examined from the eighty-seventh day of gestation through the fourth year of life. 2. 2. The rate of lipid accumulation began to fall rapidly after the forty-seventh day of life, but approximately 30 per cent of the lipid found in the hemisphere of the adult animal is deposited after the sixth month of life. 3. 3. Nearly one-half of the cerebrosides and proteolipid proteins, lipid classes closely associated with myelin, are deposited after 6 months of life.
