Caption: Artwork of a section through the human ear, showing the outer ear (auricle or pinna) at left, the earhole passage (more correctly called the external auditory meatus), and the eardrum and small bones of the middle ear at right. The three small bones, the malleus, incus and stapes transmit sound waves produced by the vibration of the eardrum towards the inner ear. The earhole passage is lined with fine hairs and sebaceous glands which secrete cerumen - earwax - to protect its delicate lining.
