Describe the functions of the three main sections of the ear
The 3 main sections of the ear are the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear.The outer ear's function is to funnel sound waves. It is made of the pinna, ear canal, and eardrum. The middle ear transfers vibrations inward. It is made of the hammer, anvil, and stirrup. The inner ear transmits the vibrations as a message to the brain. It is composed of the cochlea. The cochlea is a snail shaped structure that contains hair like structures and fluid. This will vibrate and send messsages to the auditory nerve where the brain interprets it as sound.
