How is the sound vibration captured by the tympanum transmitted through the ossicular chain of the middle ear?

3 months ago

The acoustic transmission from the external to the middle ear (and to the internal ear too) is entirely mechanical. The vibration of the tympanic membrane triggers the vibration of the hammer that then causes the incus to vibrate. The incus then causes the stapes to vibrate.
