If you are wondering about the structure of the human ear, you can just visit this post which gives you a bunch of printable diagrams of the ear. These ear diagrams are all labeled and we also give a brief explanation of the functions of its different components. Let’s take a tour at the human ear structure illustrated in the diagram below.
You can learn about the structure and functions of the human ear through the diagrams of the ear below. You can notice that there are three parts of the ear anatomy are the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. The inner ear is also called the cochlea. The outer ear consists of the pinna, ear canal, and eardrum. The middle ear consists of the ossicles (malleus, incus, stapes) and eardrum. The pictures below will show you all of the primary features of the ear anatomy.
The outer ear is the external portion of the ear and includes the fleshy visible pinna, the ear canal, and the outer layer of the eardrum. The internal ear contains the sensory receptors that convert mechanical motion into nerve impulses. The tympanum cavity is also known as the middle ear.
Having a pair of ear helps us in the process of hearing and balancing. Here is a bunch of labeled human ear diagram for you to study and use as your anatomy class reference so that you can memorize the different parts of this hearing organ!
