Caption: Brain epithelium. False-colour scanning electron micrograph of the epithelial lining of the ventricles of the brain and the spinal canal. It is formed by ependymal cells (yellow) which are simple cuboidal epithelial cells. The majority of them possess cilia (blue at centre), which project from their apical surfaces towards the ventricular cavities. The beat of the cilia eases the movement of cerebro-spinal fluid throughout the communicating ventricles of the brain. Tiny microvilli (green), which play a role in the secretion of cerebro-spinal fluid, are also seen. Magnification: x1130 at 5x7cm size. x1610 at 4x5"
