IV. Ependymal cells

Ependymal cells are cuboidal-columnar ciliated cells that line the ventricles and central canal of the spinal cord.  Specialized ependymal cells form part of the choroid plexus, a vascular structure in the ventricles of the brain responsible for the secretion of cerebrospinal fluid.
