Inferior sagittal sinus Falx cerebri Inner and outer layers of dura mater Arachnoid granulations Superior sagittal sinus Epidural space (a potential space) Arachnoid membrane Subarachnoid space Pia mater Comment: The pia mater adheres to every contour of the brain, while the delicate arachnoid membrane spans these contours. The resultant subarachnoid space is a site in which cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is found, providing buoyancy and protection to the brain, and also a site in which the cerebral arteries and veins travel.

Subarachnoid space Frontal pole, lateral ventricles Hippocampal formation Temporal pole, lateral ventricle Optic radiations Site of lateral ventricle Subarachnoid space Cerebellum Medulla Cisterna magna Subarachnoid space Comment: The T2-weighted magnetic resonance image shows the ventricular system and cerebrospinal fluid in the subarachnoid space (cisterns) as white. These images are useful for revealing pathology such as infarcts, tumors, edema, and demyelination. A contrast agent such as gadolinium can be used to delineate a tumor because of its ability to leak across a disrupted blood-brain barrier.

The hippocampal formation is necessary for the consolidation of shortterm memory into permanent or long-term traces.
