1. Meninges (arachnoid, dura mater, pia mater)
The three membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord; going from skull to the brain, the membranes are the dura mater (the toughest of the three, a.k.a the pachymennix), the arachnoid (so called because it resembles a web) and the pia mater (delicate and highly vascular).
