dural venous sinuses

Venous channels found between layers of dura mater in the brain.  They receive blood (from internal and external veins of the brain) and cerebrospinal fluid (from the subarachnoid space via the arachnoid villa) which ultimately empty into the internal jugular vein; also called dural sinuses, cerebral sinuses, and cranial sinuses.
