Oval Window

We just learned about the Stapes bone of the ear.

Another part of the ear is the Oval Window, also called the venestra vestibuli or fenestra ovalis.

The vibrations come in to the ear and shake the hammer, anvil and stirrup.
The stirrup is connected to the oval window, which is oval shaped and leads to the cochlea and the inner ear.
