    • b) tentorium cerebelli
    • c) falx cerebelli
    • d) dura mater
  4. Which ventricle does CSF enter through from the 3 holes into the subarachnoid space
    4th ventricle
  5. What is the route to supply blood to the cerebellum, brain stem, and posterior cerebral hemispheres? (3 parts)
    • 1) vertebral arteries -> foramen magnum
    • 2) basilar artery
    • 3) cerebral arterial circle (circle of willis)
    • Image Upload
  6. What fluid is CSF produced from? How does this occur?
    Blood: plasma leaks out at the choroid plexus in the ventricles and become CSF
  7. After CSF circulates through the spinal cord and brain, where does it end up?
    It ends up in the subarachnoid space to be returned to the blood via the arachnoid granulations
  8. Which dura mater contains the superior sagittal sinus?
    • falx cerebri
    • Image Upload
  9. T or F: the superior sagittal sinus contains venus blood.
    True: this is also whre CSF is returned to the blood
  10. What is the route of venous return? (4 main parts)
    • 1. superior sagittal sinus -> 2. transverse sinus -> 3. sigmoid sinuses -> 4 internal jugular veins (-> 5. brachiocephalic vein -> 6. superior vena cava -> 7. heart)
    • Image Upload
  11. Image Upload
    • a) gyri
    • b) sulci
    • c) fissure
  12. Image Upload
    • a) Dura mater
    • b) arachnoid mater
    • c) pia mater
  13. This space is filled with CSF
    subarachnoid space
