A cone-shaped cavity in the petrous portion of the temporal bone, forming one of the divisions of the labyrinth or internal ear; it consists of a spiral canal making two and a half turns around a central core of spongy bone, the modiolus; this spiral canal of the cochlea contains the membranous cochlea or ductus cochlearis in which is the organ of Corti, one of the terminal auditory apparatuses.

By Henderson, I. F.; Henderson, W. D.
Anatomists have given this name to the most anterior of the three cavities, which constitute the labyrinth of the ear, the Pelvis Au'rium, Concha auris inter'na seu Labyrinthi, Cav'itas cochlea'ta seu buccina'ta, Antrum buccino'sum, Troch'lea labyrinth'i: - and that of Scala of the Cochlea, (F.) Rompes du limacon, to two spiral cavities in the interior of the cochlea. One of these scalae terminates at the Fenes'tra rotun'da, and is called Scala tympani: the other opens at the anterior and inferior part of the vestibule: it is called Scala vestib'uli.
