Chalk Talk: Anatomy of the Ear
The ear is made up of three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear Each part has different structures that aid in hearing. The outer ear includes the auricle, which is the fleshy part of the ear, the auditory canal, and the outer layer of the eardrum, also known as the tympanic membrane. Traveling further into the ear brings you to the middle ear, which includes the eardrum itself, a cavity known as the tympanic cavity, and the ossicles. The ossicles are 3 tiny bones that vibrate when sound waves hit them. Lastly, the inner ear has many tiny structures. The oval window, which connects the middle ear to the inner ear, is one of them. There are also thrree semicircular ducts, which have the responsibility of sending information to the brain about the head position. These three ducts are usually found to be the culprit when it comes to vertigo. The cochlea is also contained within the inner ear and it converts sound into signals that the brain can recognize. The last structure in the inner ear is the auditory tube. This structure drains fluid from the middle ear into the throat. It is also known as the Eustachian tube and blockages can cause ears or become infected. All of these structures have an important role in hearing.
