Abstract

Abstract A major function of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is to provide the central nervous system with a remarkably constant physiochemical environment to maintain its function at peak efficiency. The choroid plexuses play a central role in both the production of the CSF and the regulation of its composition. In this article Ernest Wright reviews the cellular mechanisms involved in both the production of the CSF and the active clearance of undesirable solutes out of the CSF back to blood.
