  • How exactly does hearing work?

    While it seems that we simply hear with our ears, the process is a lot more complex. As with all of our senses, the brain is where sound is identified. In order for the brain to register sound, the ear captures sound waves and funnels them through the ear canal, where they vibrate the eardrum. The eardrum, in turn, sets into motion a series of very small bones, called the ossicles. The vibrations of the ossicles are absorbed by an organ called the cochlea, which contains tiny hair cells that convert those vibrations into electrical impulses that travel along the auditory nerve and into the brain, where they are recognized as the many familiar sounds we experience in our everyday lives.
