The space or angle between the tragus and the antitragus is the intertragic incisure. ■⌀ Outer and Middle Ear The outer ear is composed of the pinna and the ear canal, ending at the eardrum. The tympanic membrane is generally considered to be part of the middle ear system, which includes the middle ear cavity and its contents, and “ends” where the ossicles transmit the signal to the inner ear fluids at the oval window. Pinna The externally visible aspect of the ear is an oddshaped appendage called the pinna or auricle.

The tympanic part forms the inferior and anterior walls of the ear canal, as well as part of its posterior wall. The styloid process is an anteroinferior pillarlike projection from the base of the temporal bone that varies widely in size. It does not contribute to the auditory structures but is of interest to us as the origin of several muscles involved in the speech mechanism. these muscles are not vestigial in many lower animals that are able to orient their pinnae with respect to the location of a sound source.

The bony portion of the canal is derived from (1) the tympanic part of the temporal bone, which forms the floor and anterior wall, as well as the inferoposterior wall; (2) the squamous part, making up the roof and part of the posterior wall; and (3) the condyle of mandible, which contributes to the inferioanterior wall at the temporomandibular joint. The cartilaginous portion contains hairs as well as a plentiful distribution of sebaceous (oil) and ceruminous (wax) glands, although this is not the case for the bony portion of the canal.
