How Do We Hear?
- sound wave vibrations are collected by the outer ear and travel down the ear canal to the eardrum
- the vibrations travel from the ear drum, through the hearing bones and are transmitted to the fluid in the inner ear
- the hearing cells in the cochlea (hearing organ) move with the fluid
- this movement changes the vibrations into electrical impulses that travel along the auditory nerve to the brain
