The human ear is a precisely tuned system with a sensitivity and range that outperforms the most elaborate sound system ever manufactured. The ear contains many physiological mechanisms, and a breakdown or disruption in any of these can result in hearing difficulties.
The ear is made out of three different parts:
The shape of the outer ear helps to collect the sound waves and direct them through the auditory canal to the eardrum.
Contains the eardrum and three smallest bones in your body: the hammer, anvil and stirrup (malleus, incus and stapes). These transfer sound waves to the inner ear.
Sound waves are changed into electrical impulses by the cochlea. There are tiny sensory cells along the entire length of the fluid-filled cochlea. The cochlea transmits the message via the nerve fibres to the area of the brain in charge of processing and interpreting what we hear.
