bony region of the inner ear involved with hearing
saccule and utricle
two membranous labyrinth structures in vestibule that contain maculae.
stapes, malleus, and incus
collectively called the ossicles
type of deafness where there is interference with transmission of the sound waves to the organ of Corti; obstruction by earwax, middle ear infection, tympanic membrane scarring, etc
vestibule and semicircular canals
balance; bony labyrinth regions that contain receptors for the sense of equilibrium and acceleration
pharyngotympanic (auditory) tube
allows pressure in the middle ear to be equalized with atmospheric pressure via its connection to the nasopharynx
eardrum; vibrates as sound waves hit it; transmits the vibrations directly to the ossicles, specifically the malleous
spiral organ (organ of corti)
specific region that allows for hearing; has hair cells, tectorial membrane, basilar membrane
modified sweat glands that secrete a component of ear wax (dead skin cells other component)
receptor region that responds to gravity; reports changes in head position; responsible for sense of static equilibrium, found in the saccule and utricle. it contains otolithic membrane, hair cells and otoliths
connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx
specific receptor region that responds to rotational movements of the head; responsible for sense of dynamic (3D) equilibrium, found in ampulla of the semicircular canals, contains the cupulla and hair cells
transmits the vibration from the stirrup to the fluid of the inner ear

Why is the cervical and lumbar spinal cord enlarged?
it is thicker due to large nerve gaps that leave the spinal cord to serve the arms and legs
Describe the thecal sac (dura mater sleeve over the caudal equina)
a membranous sheath that surrounds the spinal cord
Why do we give epidural injections and spinal taps in the caudal equina
this is an area with a lot of cerebrospinal fluid, but there is an epidural space that is separate from the spinal cord, so it is less risky to inject in this area
