The brain and spinal cord, which can be thought of as an extension of the brain stem have a few protective mechanisms. The first is the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) which is like a cushion that bathes the brain. Also there ia a blood-brain barrier created by special cells that line the blood cappillaries that protect the delicate brain tissues from red blood cells (RBC) and certain chemicals, viruses, and medications. Then there are the meninges. They are layers of protective tissue that wrap around the brain and spinal cord much like our cloths protect our bodoes, the first layer is called pia mater. It means delicate mother, and you can think of this as silk underwear. After that the next layer is like our regular clothing, called the arachnoid mater, or just arachnoid, referring to its web-like structure, much like our cloths are webbed, or woven. The third layer is more like a leather jacket and leather pants. This is the 'tough mother' or dura mater. And finally, the brain and spinal cord is protected by a skeletal encasement, the brain in the cranium and the spinal cord in the vertebrae. Think of this like safety gear such as elbow and knee pads, shin guards, helmet, boots, wrist guards, and gloves. Such a complex system as the brain and spinal cord needs lots of layers of protection. I hope this created a complete picture for you so you can vizualize the layers surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
There are three things that protect the delicate tissue of the brain. The three things are bones of the cranium, the cranial meninges, and cerebrospinal fluid.
The skull protects your brain, which is too soft and delicate not to be protected.
skull protects our delicate brain and protects it from getting hurt and rib cage protects our heart from being hurt
The skeletal system protects and supports your organs. For instance, the skull protects the brain, and the ribs protect the lungs and liver.
Blood- brain barrier
Epithelial tissue covers and protects underlying tissue.
The skull, the meninges (tissue layers surrounding the brain), the immune system, and the highly regulated barrier between the bloodstream and the brain
the bone that protects the brain is the skull.
The cranium (skull) protects the brain.
You're referring to the blood-brain barrier.
The nucleus' function is almost like the function of our brain. It acts as the smarts and protects everything delicate inside that is needed to keep the cell alive.
what tipe of tissue is in the brain
The part of the skeleton which protects the brain is the skull.
The answer is Epithelial Tissue
Areolar tissue which is a loose connective tissue.
Together, the three layers of connective tissue that protect the brain and spinal cord are called the cerebral meninges. The three layers of the meninges are the pia mater, arachnoid mater, and dura mater.
The bone that protects the brain is called the skull. Without this bone, the brain is easily be harmed or damaged.
The cranium in the part of the skeleton that protects the brain.
The skeletal system protects the brain. The part is the skull (cranium).
Your skull protects your brain and your ribs protect your heart and lungs.
