Title: Cerebrospinal Fluid
Description: Drawing shows cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain and spinal cord. Also shown are the ventricles in the brain, where CSF is made.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF, shown in blue) is made by tissue that lines the ventricles (hollow spaces) in the brain. It flows in and around the brain and spinal cord to help cushion them from injury and provide nutrients.
