  • Answer: Three tiny bones (the smallest bones in the body) amplify the vibrations representing sound from the ear drum and transmit it across the eustacian tube (a cavity that opens into the thoat) to the cochlea. These bones are formally named the "malleus", the "incus", and the "stapes", but they are more commonly known as the "hammer", the "anvil" and the "stirrup".
  • Answer: The human ear has three main sections, which consist of the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. Sound waves enter your outer ear and travel through your ear canal to the middle ear.
    The ear canal channels the waves to your eardrum, a thin, sensitive membrane stretched tightly over the entrance to your middle ear. The waves cause your eardrum to vibrate. It passes these vibrations on to the hammer, one of three tiny bones in your ear. The hammer vibrating causes the anvil, the small bone touching the hammer, to vibrate. T
    he anvil passes these vibrations to the stirrup, another small bone which touches the anvil.
    From the stirrup, the vibrations pass into the inner ear. The stirrup touches a liquid filled sack and the vibrations travel into the cochlea, which is shaped like a shell. Inside the cochlea, there are hundreds of special cells attached to nerve fibers, which can transmit information to the brain. The brain processes the information from the ear and lets us distinguish between different types of sounds.
