CSF PRODUCTION & CIRCULATION.

(15 POINTS) Cerebrospinal fluid is secreted and diffused from the ________by the_______________ cells that cover the _________________of the ventricles. After filling the ______________________, the CSF escapes by the _________________into the _________________and thence by the _____________into the ______________. From the fourth ventricle the fluid is poured through the _____________________________and the two lateral______________________ into the ____________________ and reaches the ______________________. From there the CSF may pass down the ___________canal within the _________________where it circulates around and upward and finally enters the _____________ circulation. ANSWER: Cerebrospinal fluid is secreted and diffused from the BLOOD by the EPENDYMAL cells that cover the CHOROID PLEXUS of the ventricles. After filling the LATERAL VENTRICLES, the CSF escapes by the FORAMEN OF MONROE into the 3RD VENTRICLE and thence by the AQUEDUCT OF SILVIUS into the 4TH VENTRICLE. From the fourth ventricle the fluid is poured through the FORAMEN OF MAGENDIE and the two lateral FORAMINA OF LUSCHKA into the SUBARACHNOID SPACE and reaches the CISTERNA MAGNA. From there the CSF may pass down the SPINAL canal within the SUBARACHNOID where it circulates around and upward and finally enters the VENOUS circulation. 1. BLOOD 2. EPENDYMAL 3. CHOROID PLEXUS 4.
