6,7 Instead, the extracellular spaces are filled with irregular cellular processes and an amorphous, nonfilamentous granular material. Cellular connections with the superficial dural fibroblasts are absent. Only sparse, but morphologically distinct, cell-to-cell connections exist with the underlying arachnoid layer. 7,9 Arachnoid The arachnoid and the pia mater form the leptomeningeal, or thin layer of meninges. Immediately deep to the dural border cell layer sits the arachnoid barrier cell layer.

A thicker, looser collection of mesenchymal cells further covers the neural tube starting around day 24 to 28 and completely envelops the developing spinal cord and brain by day 33 to 41. 4,6,7 2/24/11 11:02 AM As the pluripotent meninx primitiva develops, it subdivides into two distinct layers between days 34 and 48. The outer portion, the ectomeninx, is dense and compact, whereas the inner layer, the endomeninx, is more loosely arranged. The ectomeninx is the precursor to the dura and the bones of the neurocranium, thus the close apposition of dura and skull stems from their shared embryological ancestry.
