i am looking for an artical that describes the chemical composition of cerebral spinal fluid, and a discription of the different types of protens present in CSF.

What do you think leads to the calcification of the choroid plexus...other than the symptoms of neurofibromatosis? DrGladwin 04:14, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

I hope get more detailness of the choroid plexus,clearly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:12, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I don't know enough about the subject to edit anything, but as written I find it very confusing. This page, and many books and other web sites tell us that the CP filters plasma, or that CSF is made by filtering plasma. This implies a passive process, a bit like what happens to plasma in the Glomerulus of the kidney. But then we are also told that "the CP epithelial layer has tight junctions in between the cells on the side facing the ventricle (apical surface). These tight junctions prevent the majority of substances from crossing the cell layer into the CSF; thus the CP acts as a blood-CSF barrier" - ie nothing can be "filtered". The reader is then informed that "CP epithelial cells actively transport sodium, chloride and bicarbonate ions into the ventricles and water follows the resulting osmotic gradient." If this latter statement describes how CSF is really formed, then the word "filtration" should not be used in the description of CSF formation?Pysifr (talk) 10:18, 1 October 2013 (UTC)


What would be the plural of "choroid plexus"? Would it be "choroid plexi" or what? The grammar used in the article is very inconsistent. ForestAngel (talk) 06:17, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

should mention calcification of the CP[edit]

The page should mention calcification of the CP. How common is calcification? What are the effects of calcification? Has anyone ever reversed CP calcification? Encyclopedant (talk) 20:26, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
