Human arachnoid villi were studied ultrastructurally to clarify the mechanism of cerebrospinal fluid absorption. Arachnoid villi of humans showed quite different features from those of animals. The former were not always invested with endothelial linings as previously reported in the latter. Instead, there was a covering layer of arachnoid cells which consisted of both an electron-lucent outer zone and an electron-dense inner zone. The outer zone had less cytoplasmic filaments and desmosomes… CONTINUE READING
