The brain’s ventricular system is effectively a series of cavities that harbor cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which cushions the brain. The cerebral ventricular system is made up of four ventricles: two lateral ventricles (one in each cerebral hemisphere), a ventricle in the diencephalon, and another in the hindbrain. At its inferior aspect, it is continuous with the spinal cord’s central canal. Any disturbance in the free flow of CSF through the ventricular system leads to hydrocephalus, in which there is excessive fluid accumulation in the brain. This, in turn, leads to abnormal widening of the cerebral ventricle and raised Intracranial pressure, which should be recognized and treated promptly.
Good and clear lecture! If you need to get an overview of the CSF, works well
Breakdown and delivery of the information was much better than many other lectures in this part of the curriculum. However, the lecturer seemed confused and delivered information in a confusing way towards the end. I also noticed that one of the tables in the slides changes suddenly to read something different and this confuses things further. Overall a lecture capable of delivering useful information in a concise way.
great presentation, it covers the basic stuff about Ventricular system.
Students who have a very good grasp on the topic may not appreciate it, but overall a good brush up on the choroid plexus and CSF.
