Spinal Fluid Movement is a biological process fundamental to the functioning of the human nervous system. Composed primarily of water, glucose, and essential electrolytes, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulates within the ventricles of the brain and around both the brain and spinal cord, providing a cushioning effect while also aiding in homeostasis and waste removal. The ebb and flow of this fluid occur through hydrostatic pressure gradients and rhythmic contractions of surrounding tissues.

The transport pathway begins in the lateral ventricles, progresses through interventricular foramina into the third ventricle, and then to fourth ventricle via cerebral aqueduct. From here it enters subarachnoid space surrounding central nervous system components.

Any disruption in its movement can lead to conditions such as hydrocephalus or intracranial hypertension. New imaging techniques allow for a deeper understanding of this complex system that performs a multitude of roles relevant to neurological health.
