The inner ear is not located in a bone cavity but is embedded in the petrous bone as a "bony labyrinth". The petrous bone is itself part of the temporal bone.

Information and ideas:
From the simple to the complex. The actual hearing organ that is located in the cochlea of the inner ear is quite complex. It is therefore definitely advantageous if the student first of all gets an idea of where and how the inner ear is located in the skull.

Relevant for teaching:
Structure and function of a sensory organ
Reception of stimuli and transmission of information
Functions of senses.
There are no other media directly related to this file.
