Hey my name is Jeff, and I learned about ears today, its really cool. I learned all about the way you hear. The first part of the very long process is about the outer which is the part that we can see. The outer ear is what captures the sound waves for the rest of the ear to translate the the brain.
The next part is the middle ear which is the part that conduct sound waves/vibrations from the ear drum to the inner ear. The middle ear consists of the hammer anvil and stirrup. Each have a specific and important job.
The last part is the inner ear and that part is the part that converts sound waves to brain waves and sends them to the brain for processing. ITS ALL SO COOL RIGHT! just love hearing. wait are you awake?
