    Lesions of the fourth ventricle represent a challenge to neurosurgeons because of severe deficits that occur following injury to the delicate structures in the ventricle wall and floor. The conventional approach to the fourth ventricle is by splitting the vermis on the suboccipital surface of...

    Bordering the ventricular cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are epithelial cells of choroid plexus (CP), ependyma and circumventricular organs (CVOs) that contain homeostatic transporters for mediating secretion/reabsorption. The distributional pathway (�nexus�) of CP-CSF-ependyma-brain...

    The multiciliated ependyma forms an epithelial-like layer that could act as a selective barrier between the brain parenchyma and cerebrospinal fluid. In the present study, tyrosine hydroxylase-containing fibres have been detected in the basal pole of the ependymal cells of the lateral ventricles...

    Ezrin (cytovillin, p81 protein) is an actin-binding protein of the ERM (ezrin-radixin-moesin) family, members of which have roles in stabilizing structures formed by the plasmalemma. The aim of the present work was to study rat brain cells containing ezrin and to identify their topography and...
