Details
 

The three smallest bones that are joined to each other in the human body are located in the middle ear and are referred to as the auditory ossicles: malleus (hammer), incus (anvil) und stapes (stirrup).

Features and Benefits
  • Their job is to transmit incoming sound from the eardrum via the vestibular window to the inner ear and mechanically amplify the sound.
  • The inner ear must be protected from lasting harm which can be caused by loud noise., this is achieved by a reflex that triggers muscle movement (stapedius muscle).
  • If the auditory ossicles are shaken too vigorously (e.g. a sneeze or a cough), another muscle (tensor timpani) provides protection, by sticking to the hammer and tightening the eardrum.
  • Otosclerosis is a typical condition that affects the auditory ossicles, causing them to stiffen, leading to increasing loss of hearing.
  • In our model, you can see a cast and enlargement of original ossicles, created using micro CT.
