1. The internal ear, comprising the semicircular canals, vestibule, and cochlea; see labyrinthus. 2. Any group of communicating cavities, as in each lateral mass of the ethmoid bone, labyrinthus ethmoidalis. 3. Pars convoluta of a cortical lobule of the kidney; the portion of kidney cortex intervening between the pyramids of Ferrein; it contains the Malpighian corpuscles and convoluted tubules. 4. A group of upright test-tubes terminating below in a base of communicating, alternately U- and ÐŸ-shaped tubes, used for isolating motile from non-motile organisms in culture, or a motile from a less motile organism (as the typhoid from the colon bacillus) the former travelling faster and farther through the tubes than the latter (see cut).

A structure, as that formed by Daedalos at Crete, composed of intricate winding passages, which render it difficult to find the way from the interior to the entrance; a maze; an inexplicable difficulty; the cavities of the internal ear; a series of troughs conveying water for washing pulverized ore in a stamping-mill.

A place, full of turnings, the exit of which is not easily discoverable. Anatomists have given this name to the aggregate of parts, constituting the internal ear, Labyrinthus auris intimae, Iatima pars organi auditus, Labyrinthic cavity of the ear. The Labyrinth is situate between the tympanum and meatus auditorius internus. It is composed of several cavities, which communicate with each other in the dried bone; as the vestibule, cochlea, semicircular canals, etc. It is lined by periosteum, and also by a pulpy membrane, constituting the membranous labyrinth, on which the auditory nerve is regularly dispersed. This membrane forms two sacks in the vestibule, called sacculus vestibule and sacculus, respectively, which resemble in shape that of the bony cavities containing them. Each sac contains calcareous matter, constituting the Otoliths and Otoconies. When the sac is laid open, upon the upper and outer part, a partition appears, partaking of the nature of the sac, and called by Meckel, Septum vestibuli nervoso-membranaceum. Labyrinth is also applied to the lateral portions of the ethmoid bone, which are formed of large irregular cells.
