This page explores the structure of the ear and the way sound is received, transmitted, and understood by the brain. It explains the physical processes by which the outer, middle, and inner ears collect sound and relay it to nerve cells. Java simulations take the user on an interactive journey through the human ear, illustrating each concept being taught. This item is part of a module on the physics of sound for high school and middle school classrooms.
