The veins of the scalp drain into the superior saggital sinus and then to the confluency of sinuses. They have no valves and therefore can be a source of infection in the brain. Sutures • • • • Coronal Lamboidal Saggital Squamosal

The Meninges The surface of the brain is made up of 3 layers: 1. Dura Mater – toughest and thickest – forms venous sinuses and subdivides brain with: • Falx Cerebri – down centre of brain, separating two hemispheres. • Tentorium Cerebelli – separating cerebellum from the rest of the brain. 2. Arachnoid Mater – spider-like appearance. Thin, transparent, fibrous. 3. Pia Mater – attached to brain. Between the arachnoid and pia mater layers lies the subarachnoid space. This contains CSF which is continuously being produced by ependyma cell in the ventricles. CSF is removed by arachnoid granulations, allowing CSF to enter the venous sinuses.
