I How is the viscosity of a plasma produced?

Summary
I'm interested in knowing more about instabilities within plasma. Is the viscosity of plasma produced by thermal, magnetic, or gravitational effects (or even something else)?

I had the opportunity to talk with multiple Ph.D. students during the summer and was especially interested in the work one did regarding plasma turbulence. I'd like to know more about the viscosity of plasma and maybe get a simple explanation on how we currently deal with the deviation of particles alongside magnetic flux in tokamaks.

I'd also like to apologize for the lack of details or even for possible physics errors.
Thank you in advance!
