Last revised by Dr Ammar Haouimi on 19 Jul 2020

The choroid plexus is located within the cerebral ventricles and is made of epithelial cells, loose connective tissue (tela choroidea), and permeable capillaries. It produces cerebrospinal fluid

The choroid plexuses also form the blood-CSF barrier alongside arachnoid and arachnoid villi 2.
