What causes the auditory ossicles to vibrate?
The sound waves, coming through the auditory canal, strike the tympanic membrane (eardrum). The eardrum vibrates because of the soundwaves. This vibration is picked up by the ossicles and transmitted through the middle ear to the oval window. Therefore it is the soundwaves causing the eardrum to vibrate that ultimately makes the ossicles vibrate.
