The Gift of Hearing: The Amazing Ear

The human ear gives us many gifts; Clarity is here to help you hear!

The holidays are a time to both receive gifts and be thankful for what we have. Some things might be easy for us to take for granted, but knowing about them will help us be grateful for them. The human ear is no small thing for which to be thankful; the gift of hearing comes through the amazing ear. Take care of your hearing and contact Clarity Audiology in Baltimore, MD, for any of your hearing or hearing protection needs!

The Ability to Hear

Our ability to hear happens through a series of complex, instantaneous steps. Sound waves enter the outer ear into the middle and inner ear, turning the sound waves into electrical signals that travel to the brain through an auditory nerve. The brain and the ear are very much connected, and the system is very intricate.

The Ability to Locate Sound

There is more to the ear than plain hearing, though. The ear and brain also work together to locate the direction from which a sound is coming. It all depends on which ear the sound waves hit first and their intensity level. Not only can we hear, but we can hear from where a sound is coming without thinking about it.

The Ability to Filter Noise

Our hearing works differently depending on the situation. There are many background noises that we might hear daily of which we are not aware, such as the blowing of the heating system in the house, the rain tapping on the window pane, or people talking in other conversations around us. The brain filters out background noise to focus on a sound or someone’s voice.

The Ability to Balance

Within the inner ear are organs containing fluid and crystals that help regulate our sense of up, down, and balance. It is strange to think about how we could lose our sense of which way is up or down. However, the inner ear helps to ground us in this way, affecting how the rest of our body acts to balance itself.
