The choroid plexus is located within the cerebral ventricles and is made of choroidal epithelial cells (type of ependymal cell), loose connective tissue (tela choroidea), and permeable capillaries. It produces cerebrospinal fluid.
- the roof of the temporal horns of the lateral ventricles, extending along the floor of the body of the lateral ventricles, through the interventricular foramen of Monro, and along the roof of the third ventricle. They typically do not extend into the frontal or occipital horns of the lateral ventricles
- the medullary part of the fourth ventricle, extending into the lateral apertures (of Luschka)
