Great! Thanks for answering I’m always happy to get a discussion going! These are all cool things about this system! Did you know CSF can serve to transport some hormones? Also another fun follow up question: would hypertension affect CSF volume or production rate?

CSF is sure an interesting component to the system. How it all ties together. Hypertension is increased intravascular pressure, which would increase CSF production and then that in turn can put pressure on nerves and brain tissue depending on where the CSF accumulates.
