How your Ear Works

The Pinna collect’s sound vibrations and directs them through the ear canal to the ear drum.

The ear drum transmits sound through the middle ear via movements of the three small bones,the malleus, incus and stapes which mimic the compressions and rarefactions set up by the initial sound source

These sound vibrations are then transferred through the fluid filled inner ear, causing stimulation of the hair cells in the cochlea.

Nervous impulses generated by the hair cells are in turn transmitted via the auditory nerve to the brain for interpretation.
