Get a handful labeled anatomy of the ear diagrams to assist your study about the anatomy of our ear. These printable anatomy diagrams are designed to guide you in studying the structure of the human ear. These ear diagrams use different colors to show different parts and also labels to show a number of important ear component. Let’s start by the first diagram provided below.
The ear is made up of three parts: external ear canal, middle, and inner ear. The middle ear is separated from the ear canal by the eardrum. The middle ear contains the malleus, incus, and stapes, which are also known as the hammer, anvil, and stirrup. The inner ear contains the cochlea, which is the main sensory organ of hearing. The Eustachian tube runs from the middle ear to the area in back of the nose. In the following ear diagrams, you’ll see much detailed parts of your ears. Check out the following anatomy diagrams.
The middle and inner parts of the ear are located in hollow cavities on either side of the head within the temporal bones of the skull. The external part of your ear consists of the pinna and ear lobe. The pinna is the shell-like part of your external ear, and is made of cartilage and skin. The middle ear is an air-filled space that contains 3 tiny bones (known as ossicles), called the malleus (hammer), incus and stapes (stirrup). The Eustachian tube is a narrow tube that connects your middle ear to the back of your nose and throat, it links the middle ear with the back of the nose. The eustachian tube helps to equalize the pressure in the middle ear.
All three parts of the ear are important for detecting sound by working together to move sound from the outer part through the middle and into the inner part of the ear. All these pictures are printable and you are also provided the worksheets or unlabeled versions of the diagrams.
