The pia mater is a very delicate membrane, which covers the brain immediately, penetrates into its anfractuosities, and envelops, also, the cerebellum and the spinal prolongation, &c. Bichat does not regard it as a membrane, properly so called, but as a net-work of blood-vessels, united by a lax areolar tissue. The Pia Mater exterior is the portion of membrane which covers the exterior of the encephalon, and faces the arachnoid externally. The Pia Mater interior is that which lines the cerebral fossae, into which it penetrates by a cleft situate between the posterior part of the corpus callosum and the fornix; and by two other fissures, situate between the corpora fimbriata and thalami nervorum opticorum. The pia mater contains a great number of granulations similar to the Glandulae Pacchioni.
