The lateral ventricles and choroid plexuses of an adult and near-term sheep fetus were examined with scanning electron microscopy. The predominant surface structure of the ependymal cells were cilia arranged in clumps with evidence of metachronic activity. Topographical variations of the ependymal surface are described and discussed according to their role in transport of cerebrospinal fluid and their relation to underlying nervous tissue.
