  • Externally Sourced Definition: * The bony structure of the inner ear that houses the membranous labyrinth (i.e., the cochlea, vestibule, semicircular canals, utricle, and saccule). May also refer to these latter membranous structures. (PSY) * The inner ear, containing the essential parts of the organ of hearing. It consists of two labyrinthine compartments. The bony labyrinth is a complex of three interconnecting cavities or spaces (SEMICIRCULAR CANAL; VESTIBULE; and COCHLEA) in the TEMPORAL BONE. Within the bony labyrinth, lies the membranous labyrinth which is a complex of sacs and tubules (SACCULE AND UTRICLE; COCHLEAR DUCT) forming a continuous space enclosed by EPITHELIUM and connective tissue. These spaces are filled with LABYRINTHINE FLUIDS of various compositions. (MSH) * The portion of the ear located within the temporal bone that is involved in both hearing and balance and includes the semicircular canals, vestibule, and cochlea. (from American Heritage Dictionary online) (NCI) * internal ear; the essential part of the organ of hearing, consisting of an osseous and a membranous portion. (CSP)
