How is the brain protected from shaking the head?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Fluid: The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid (csf.) while the brain doesn't really 'float' it is suspended in the fluid, which helps protect it from moving around with small movements, like shaking your head.
