Scala Vestibuli

The scala vestibuli is one of the three, fluid-filled, spiraling conduits into which the cochlea of the inner ear is divided. It is situated above the scala tympani and the scala media (cochlear duct), which is in between the first ones. The spiral lamina separates the scala vestibuli from the scala tympani, while Reissner's membrane separates it from the scala media.
