Outline the formation, circulation and functions of cerebrospinal fluid.
This is a three-part question and was marked as such. The circulation and functions of CSF was generally well answered. Formation of CSF, however, was answered poorly, with many candidates listing its composition instead. The examiners were looking for an understanding of the physiological processes of formation not the composition.
