説明

The auditory ossicles are the three smallest bones in the human body, the malleus, the incus and the stapes. The first is attached to the tympanic membrane, the last to the circumference of the fenestra vestibuli, the incus being placed between and connected to both by delicate articulations. They are contained within the middle ear space and serve to transmit sounds from the air to the fluid-filled labyrinth (cochlea)
