  1. Step 1
    The outer ear funnels sound waves to the eardrum
  2. Step 2
    The Bones of the Middle Ear (hammer anvil stirrup) amplify and relay the eardrum's vibrations through the Oval Window into the fluid filled Cochlea
  3. Step 3
    The resulting pressure changes in the cochlear fluid cause the Basilar Membrane that has about 16,000 tiny protruding hairs, to ripple
  4. Step 4
    This in turn bends those hairs on the surface
  5. Step 5
    These hair fibers then send messages to adjacent nerve fibers
  6. Step 6
    These nerve fibers send the message through the Auditory Nerve, into the Auditory Cortex
