Diagram Of The Ear Ossicles - diagram of the ear anatomy the middle ear consists of the ossicles malleus incus stapes and ear drum the inner ear consists of the cochlea the auditory hearing nerve and the brain all three parts of the ear are important for detecting sound by working together to move sound from the outer part through the middle and into the inner part the ear canal is a cylindrical structure lined by skin it extends from the outer opening meatus to the eardrum the ear canal is lubricated by glands in the skin that secrete wax the wax may plug the canal causing a loss of hearing an infection of the ear canal skin can cause inflammation and painful swelling the ossicles in the middle ear do the job of lification then the cochlea in the inner ear conducts the sound through a fluid cochlea is a plex part of the ear which takes the physical vibrations caused by the sound waves and translates them into electrical.
information for the brain to recognize as sound the ossicles the three tiniest bones in the body form the coupling between the vibration of the eardrum and the forces exerted on the oval window of the inner ear formally named the malleus incus and stapes they are monly referred to in english as the hammer anvil and ii there is a small flexible chain of three small bones called ear ossicles the malleus hammer shaped the incus anvil shaped and the stapes stirrup shaped the malleus is attached to the tympanic mem 173 brane on one side and to the incus on the other side the ear can be split into three parts external middle and inner the middle ear lies within the temporal bone and extends from the tympanic membrane to the lateral wall of the inner ear the main function of the middle ear is to transmit vibrations from the tympanic membrane to the inner ear via the auditory ossicles.
inside the middle ear three small bones ossicles form a chain and conduct sound vibrations from the eardrum to the inner ear once in the fluid filled inner ear sounds are converted into nerve hearing the eardrum vibrates when sound waves enter the ear canal ossicles three tiny bones including the stapes the smallest bone in the body pass vibrations to the oval window which is a membrane at the entrance to the inner ear balance balance is achieved through a bination of the sensory organ in the inner ear visual input
