* The spinal cord and brain are enclosed by 3 fibrous connective tissue membranes called meninges(membrane)
*These membranes separate the soft tissue of the CNS from the bones of the vertebrae & skull

2.Arachnoid mater(resemblance of a spider web)-adheres to the dural sheath and consists of the arachnoid membrane,adhering inside of the dura, and a loose mesh of collagenous & elastic fibers spanning the gap between the arachnoid membrane & the pia mater
This gap is called the subarachnoid space-which is filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)-a clear liquid
