    Solution Preview

    The majority of cerebrospinal fluid is produced in the four choroid plexuses of the brain. Each ventricle (two lateral ventricles, third and fourth ventricle) contain a choroid plexus. For the purpose of tracing the complete pathway of CFS in this solution we will assume that the CFS molecule we are following is produced in one of the lateral ventricles.
