How hearing works

Hearing



The external ear receives the sounds and guides them via the auditory canal to the eardrum.

The sound waves make the ear drum vibrate.

The bones in the middle ear (the hammer, anvil and stirrup) transmit and amplify the vibrations to the inner ear.

In the inner ear a fluid stimulates the nerve endings (the hair cells).

The hair cells send electrical impulses via the auditory nerve to the brain.
