Choroid Plexus

The choroid plexus are highly vascularized, folding membranes located in the ventricles of the base of the brain. Most of them are found in the lateral ventricles, while a 30% of them are situated in the third and fourth ventricles, sticking into their cavities from their walls. Their function is the secretion of cerebrospinal fluid, regulating intraventricular pressure.
