Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The arachnoid mater, literally from Latin "spider (web)-like mother," is one of the three meninges, the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. It is interposed between the two other meninges, the more superficial dura mater and the deeper pia mater, and is separated from the pia mater by the subarachnoid space. The delicate, spiderweb-like (hence the name) arachnoid layer, attached to the inside of the dura, surrounds the brain and spinal cord but does not line the brain down into its sulci (folds). Cerebrospinal fluid flows under this membrane in the subarachnoid space, which is full of the delicate fibres of the arachnoid extending down to attach to the pia mater.show more
