Meninges

MENINGES
The meninges are three membranes which cover and protect the brain. The three membranes from outermost to innermost are: Dura Mater, Arachnoid, and Pia Mater. The Dura Mater gives the brain support as well as protection. The Arachnoid layer provides a space where cerebrospinal fluid can circulate. The Pia Mater contains the blood vessels which supply the brain with blood. [CG] {NR}
