CSF continues to be produced within the ventricles but cannot circulate normally and be reabsorbed in the arachnoid granulations. The result is an enlargement of the ventricles. The underlying cause might be a tumor or a developmental anomaly. Treatment of hydrocephalus involves reestablishing the normal cycle of production, circulation, and reabsorption. Often this includes the surgical implantation of a shunt from the ventricles to the peritoneal cavity where CSF can be absorbed. Chapter Summary • The human central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord.

Which one of the following statements describes the underlying cause for some of his symptoms? A. A deficit in oligodendrocyte function leads to focal demyelination of axon bundles. B. Demyelination leads to a decrease in membrane capacitance, which delays the propagation of action potentials. C. The most common symptom is motor weakness because Schwann cells only myelinate motor axons. D. Axonal damage is due to microglial migration into the myelin sheath and phagocytosis of axonal segments. E.

B. The cell membrane accumulates charges, which hinders the movement of ions. C. The cell membrane binds ions to its surface, allowing ions to move quickly when needed. D. The cell membrane is selectively permeable to ions. E.
