Cochlear Duct

The cochlear duct, also known as scala media, is a fluid-filled coiled up tube which is located in the cochlea bony canal and contains the organ of Corti. The cochlear duct lies between the scala vestibuli and the scala tympani, with the Reissner's membrane and the basilar membrane separating the three spiraling tubes that make up the cochlea.
