The Malleus is one of the three tiny bones located in the middle ear, collectively known as the ossicles, which are essential for hearing. The malleus is attached to the eardrum and transmits sound vibrations from the eardrum to the other ossicles (the incus and stapes). This chain of ossicles, in turn, amplifies and transmits the vibrations to the inner ear, allowing for the perception of sound.
