The cochlea consists of a coiled canal which appears in three compartments in the section. The part leading upwards is called the scala vestibuli and begins at the oval window.
The part leading downwards is called the scala tympani.

Between scala vestibuli and scala tympani there is a membranous tube which is also filled with fluid. This is where the actual hearing organ, the Organ of Corti is located.
