  1. Basilar membrane
    
    • The basilar membrane within the cochlea of the inner ear is a stiff structural element that separates two liquid-filled tubes that run along the coil of the cochlea, the scala media and the scala tympani
    • 
  2. Ossicles
    • The ossicles (also called auditory
    • ossicles) are the three smallest bones in the human body. They are
    • contained within the middle ear space and serve to transmit sounds from the air
    • to the fluid-filled labyrinth (cochlea). The absence of the auditory ossicles
    • would constitute a moderate-to-severe hearing loss. The term
    • "ossicles" literally means "tiny bones" and commonly refers
    • to the auditory ossicles, though the term may refer to any small bone
    • throughout the body.
