How Does Hearing Work?

The human ear is made up of three primary areas – the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear. A sound wave generally passes through the outer ear and causes vibrations against the eardrum. Three small bones in the middle ear and the eardrum amplify this vibration as it travels to the inner ear. Here, the vibration passes through the fluid present in your ear in the cochlea, a snail-shaped structure within your inner ear.
