Bones of the Ear
Bones of the ear: Malleus, Incus and Orbiculare, Stapes. The bones of the area are connected with each other in the drum and serve to transmit vibrations of the membrane of the tympanum to the internal ear. They are very hard and brittle, with no cartilage on their articular surfaces like other bones.
