Ventricles in the brain

What is a ventricle in the brain?

The ventricles of the brain are a communicating network of cavities filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and located within the brain parenchyma.

Which are the ventricles?

The ventricular system is composed of 2 lateral ventricles, the third ventricle, the cerebral aqueduct, and the fourth ventricle . The choroid plexuses located in the ventricles produce CSF, which fills the ventricles and subarachnoid space, following a cycle of constant production and reabsorption

 Where is the location of the ventricles?

  • 2 Lateral Ventricle- Lies in the cerebral cortex
  • 3rd ventricle-Lies between the two thalami
  • 4th Ventricle-Lies on the brain stem between medulla and cerebellum
