Caption: Brain ventricle. Confocal light micrograph of a section through one of the ventricles of the brain (centre). Ventricles are cavities within the brain that are continuous with the central canal of the spinal cord and filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The fluid circulates through the ventricles, cushioning the brain. A selective barrier (bright green) around the ventricle prevents potentially harmful molecules or micro- organisms from entering the CSF. Surrounding the barrier are glial cells (red) a type of support cell that may help maintain the barrier.
