The outermost of the three small auditory bones, ossicles; the hammer. It is attached to the tympanic membrane by a long process, the handle or manubrium. See Illust. of Far.
A genus of bivalve shells; the hammer shell.
The first bone of the ossicular chain which is attached to the ear drum and to the incus. It is the largest one in the ossicular chain.
(mal´ ee us) [L. malleus: hammer] • The first of the three bones that conduct movements of the eardrum to the oval window of the inner ear. (See incus, stapes.)
the first and largest bone in the ossicular chain. The handle (manubrium) is attached to the eardrum and serves to activate the saddleshaped surface on the body of the incus to transmit sound waves.
(MAHL-ee-uhs) The lateral ear bone that contacts the tympanic membrane; the hammer.
The largest auditory ossicle (small bone), which attaches to the tympanic membrane and connects to the incus. image
A small bone in the middle ear, often called the hammer.

One of the three ossicles of the middle ear. Also called the hammer.
a hammerâ€“shaped small bone or ossicle (also known as the hammer) of the middle ear which connects with the incus and is attached to the inner surface of the eardrum
one of three bones of hearing in the middle ear that helps transmit sound waves from the outer ear to the cochlea. Also called the hammer.
Latin = a hammer.
The ear bone that directly connects the other ossicles to the tympanic membrane, also commonly referred to as the "hammer" bone.
One of the bones comprising the middle ear of mammals.

The first / hammer-shaped bone in the ossicular chain, that is attached to the eardrum.
The first bone in the series of three small bones, or ossicles, of the middle ear. Sometimes called the hammer.
One of the three tiny bones of the middle ear which serve to transmit sound from the eardrum to the cochlea.
One of the three small bones in the middle ear; shaped like a hammer, attached to the eardrum and the incus; starts a rocking motion along the ossicles.
One of three ossicles in middle ear attached to tympanic membrane; hammer-shaped. Important for transmission of sound energy to oval window and sensation of hearing. See also incus, stapes.
The outermost of three tiny bones, connecting the eardrum to the vibration-sensitive structures of the inner ear and thereby amplifying and transmitting sound waves.
The malleus or hammer is a hammer-shaped small bone or ossicle of the middle ear which connects with the incus and is attached to the inner surface of the eardrum. The word is Latin, and means 'hammer'.
