Both the brain and the spinal cord are protected by
the spinal column
Actually, only the spinal cord is protected by the spinal column. The brain and spinal cord are both protected by cerebral spinal fluid, a fluid synthesized by the choroid plexuses in the lateral and 3rd ventricles of the brain. Plexuses is the plural of plexus.
Brain and Spinal cord are protected by the meningeal layers- dura, arachnoid and pia......... There is bone protecting both- Cranium protects brain while the vertebral column protect spinal cord ......... An additional cushioning effect is provided by a pool of cerebro spinal fluid (CSF)
My fists. I don't let anyone mess with my brain or my spinal cord. Vitamins also help.
In a word, calcium.
