Parts of the Ear

pinna collects sound and funnels it into the auditory canal
outer ear canal also called the auditory canal; connects the outer ear with the eardrum
eardrum thin sheet of muscle that vibrates in response to sound
ossicles made up of the hammer, anvil, and stirrup; three bones that amplify the sound through vibrations
semicircular canals three fluid-filled canals that send signals to the brain about your balance
cochlea fluid-filled membrane that passes vibrations to tiny hairs that are connected to the auditory nerves
cilia the tiny hairs on the cochlea that connect to the auditory nerves
nerves send messages to your brain to be interpreted as sound
Eustacian tube equalizes pressure between the two sides of your eardrum
