Caption: Middle and inner ear. Artwork illustrating the internal organs of the human ear. The middle ear transmits sound from the tympanum (ear drum, pink oval at centre) to the inner ear. It consists of 3 tiny joined bones (the ossicles, white): the malleus, joined to the inside of the eardrum, the incus, and the stapes, connected to the inner ear. The inner ear consists of fluid-filled passages called the labyrinth (orange). The spiral cochlea contains microscopic hairs that respond to sound vibrations from the middle ear. Nerves (long, tubular at right) connect the cochlea to the brain. The loops above the cochlea are semi- circular canals which are responsible for balance.
