Figure 2: Photomicrograph of hematoxylin and eosin-stained 40 μm thick celloidin section of the human cochlea showing the structures within the scala media (ScM). A contour (black outline) was drawn to show the extent of the stria vascularis (SV), which in this case extends from the spiral prominence (SP) to the attachment of the Reissner's membrane (RM). It rests on the fibrous spiral ligament (SLi). The section also shows the scala tympani (ScT) and the scala vestibuli (ScV). The sensory organ of Corti (OC) lies on the basilar membrane (BM); while the tectorial membrane (TM) that covers it is separated in this section. The spiral ligament rests on the bony wall (decalcified bone-DB) of the turn of the cochlea (scale bar = 200 μm)
