As previously noted, the cerebro-spinal fluid secreted within the ventriclesescapes through the openings in the roof of the fourth ventricle—foramen of Magendieand the foramina of Luschka (page 1100)—^into the subarachnoid space. Afterfilling the cisterna magna and the other large spaces on the basal surface of the brainand surrounding the spinal cord, the fluid finds its way into the smaller spaces onthe exterior of the cerebrum. In this manner the entire mass of nervous tissue isenveloped by a more or less extensive cushion of
