What are called 'Meninges'?

The meninges is a membrane that covers and protects our brain. It is composed of three layers called the pia, arachnoid and dura. We also have cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which cushions and protects our brain and spinal cord as it circulates.

The meninges are three layers of protective tissue called the dura mater, arachnoid mater, and pia mater that surround the neuraxis. The meninges of the brain and spinal cord are continuous, being linked through the magnum foramen.
