Deep to the dura mater, there is a layer of connective tissue which has fibers that cross between the dura mater and the brain surface. These fibers look like spider webs and are named arachnoid mater. Fluid flows around the fibers of the arachnoid mater keeping the brain “floating” in a fluid filled space. This is the cerebrospinal fluid. If a clinician wants to sample cerebrospinal fluid, the needle used would have to pass through a number of layers, including both the dura mater and the outer layer of the arachnoid mater.
