Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless liquid that fills the hollow spaces (ventricles) surrounding the brain and the spinal cord, as well as between two of the meninges.[1] It provides a mechanical barrier that cushions against shock.[2] CSF is made by tissue called the choroid plexus in the ventricles in the brain.[1]
