The Auditory System (Ear)

Pinna: the cone structure of the ear that aids in the collection of sound waves

Auditory Canal: the canal that carries sound to the eardrum

Ear Drum: the membrane that vibrates after being hit by sound waves, sending signal to next stage

Hammer: the first bone of the ossicles to be vibrated

Anvil: second bone in the ossicles that will vibrate to carry the sound waves

Stirrup: the last set of bones in the ossicle region, which transfers the signal to the cochlea

Semicircular Canals: this structure holds fluids, which will move around and give your head a sense of balance

Cochlea: shell-like membrane that contains hair cells, which act as the consolidators for the sense of hearing
