A small opening, covered by a thin membrane, in the cochlea which accommodates the footplate of the stapes.
The flexible membrane which, when moved by the bones of the middle ear, produces pressure waves in the inner ear
The oval-shaped membrane that leads into the middle ear.
The membrane separating the middle ear from the inner ear.
Membrane through which the terminal middle ear ossicle transmits vibrations to the inner ear.
The division between the middle and inner ear.
a membraneâ€“covered opening which leads from the middle ear to the vestibule of the inner ear. The end of the stapes fits into the oval window
membrane which vibrates, transmitting sound into the cochlea. It separates the middle ear from the inner ear.
This is where the middle ear cavity joins with the inner ear.
fenestra that has the base of the stapes attached to it
A membrane between the middle ear and the inner ear. 653
A connection between the stapes footplate of the middle ear and the fluid filled inner ear through which sound vibrations pass in a normal auditory system.
see fenestra ovalis.
An opening in the bony wall that separates the middle ear from the inner ear.
Oval-shaped opening into the inner ear. The footplate of the stapes fits into the oval window.
Opening between the middle and the inner ear.
A membrane on the cochlea of the inner ear that receives vibrations from the ear drum via three connecting bones (malleus, incus, and stapes). Vibrations at the oval window set up similar vibrations in the internal fluid of the cochlea, ultimately activating the hair cells that serve as auditory receptors. See also cochlea, hair cells.
The oval window (or vestibular window) is a membrane-covered opening which leads from the middle ear to the vestibule of the inner ear.
