The cerebral aqueduct , also known as the aqueduct of Sylvius or the mesencephalic duct, is a canal containing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), is within the mesencephalon (or midbrain) that connects the third ventricle in the diencephalon to the fourth ventricle, which is between the pons and cerebellum.
A blockage in this duct is a cause of hydrocephalus.
