How We Hear

As soundwaves pass through the air

1- The outer ear collects and funnels sounds to the eardrum.

2- The middle ear converts those sound waves into mechanical energy through the ossicles (middle ear bones) which conduct the sound to the inner ear.

3- The inner ear converts that energy into electrical impulses and transmits those signals to the central auditory system via the auditory nerve.

4- The brain decodes those signals into our perceptions of sound and speech.​​​​​​​
