Inner ear and brain structures. Coloured 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the anatomy of the inner ear and associated brain structures. This view from above is of a normal left ear, showing the internal auditory meatus (IAM) at upper centre, with the inner ear at upper left. The cranial nerves (CN VII, facial nerve; and CN VIII, vestibulocochlear nerve) are seen crossing the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) at centre, which is between the cerebellum and the pons. The pink areas at right and bottom are parts of the brain.
