Intrinsic ear muscles

Other Terms: Ear muscles


The intrinsic ear muscles are a series of small muscle slips that attach to the cartilage of the external ear. These muscles are part of the facial expression muscle group that develops from the second branchial arch. They produce very limited movement in the human ear and all the muscles are innervated by the facial nerve.
