Caption: Brain lining. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the lining of the brain, showing ependymal cells (yellow) and ciliary hairs (green). Ependymal cells are a type of neuroglia (glial cells) that line the ventricles of the brain and produce cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). CSF has a number of functions, including buffering the brain from shock, transporting hormones around the brain and absorbing waste products. The ciliary hairs are used to help circulate the CSF.
