    . The ear is made up of three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear.The outer part of the ear collects sound. Sound travels through the auricle and the auditory canal, a short tube that ends at the eardrum. Sound entering the outer ear travels through the middle ear and causes the eardrum and ossicle in the middle ear to vibrate. As it travels, it amplifies and changes from air to liquid. When the stapes moves, it pushes the oval window, which then moves the cochlea. The cochlea takes the fluid vibration of sounds from the surrounding semi-circular ducts and translates them into signals that are sent to the brain by nerves like the vestibular nerve and cochlear nerve. In order to hear something which is very loud or any whispering, sound…

    premature ear structures (Schwartz, 1996). Maybe a sign of undiscovered hearing loss is a person’s slurred and improper speech (Schwartz, 1996). When someone has mixed hearing loss, he or she has sensorineural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss (Schwartz, 1996). When spiral ganglion neurons stop sending nerve impulses from the cochlea to the brain, and there is a loss of sensory hair cells in the ear, deafness occurs (Chen & et al., 2012). About four-thousand newly born babies in the…

    Waves of sound energy race out from a loud object in all directions and that energy keeps moving through the air until it reaches your ears. That is when you then hear the noise of said loud object. The pinnae (the large outer flaps of your ears), gather all sounds coming from the different directions, they are shaped in a way that allows this. They then go on to channel the energy through into the ear canal. At the end of this ear canal is the eardrum. When the energy, also known as sound…

    ear, they travel through the outer ear, the external auditory canal, and strike the eardrum (tympanic membrane) causing it to vibrate. The central part of the eardrum is connected to a small bone of the middle ear called the malleus (hammer). As the malleus vibrates, it transmits the sound vibrations to the other two small bones (incus, stapes) or ossicles of the middle ear, the incus and stapes. As the stapes moves, it pushes a structure called the oval window in and out. This is passed onto…
