The central part of the eardrum is connected to a small bone of the middle ear called the malleus (hammer). As the malleus vibrates, it transmits the sound vibrations to the other two small bones (incus, stapes) or ossicles of the middle ear, the incus and stapes. As the stapes moves, it pushes a structure called the oval window in and…
