Overview of tracer distribution in a mouse head. Tracers injected in the striatum (A) distribute via ISF to the lateral ventricle (B) and subsequently to the ventricular system (C), where they mix with the CSF. From there, they spread along the ventricles and via the cisterna magna (D) they reach the SAS (E). Tracers leave the brain via the cribriform plate via the olfactory nerves (F). In the SAS tracers distribute along the leptomeningeal vessels, along the paravascular space (G)
