Human Ear Facts
Human ear is an organ that is designated for hearing. This organ is comprised of three small bones: – stapes, malleus and incus. There are three parts of human ear: – inner ear, middle ear and outer ear. Our inner ear has a direct connection with our brain and helps our body to maintain its equilibrium. Middle ear is connected to throat with Eustachian tube. It is the reason why we lose our voice when we catch a cold. Human ear functions even in our sleep but we cannot remember anything because our brain stops processing information that time.
Quick Facts: –
- Ears are self cleaning organs. You do not have to clean the ear wax yourself. It is automatically pushed out as needed.
- There are fine hairs in ears that help us to hear. If damaged, they cannot be replaced or re-grown.
- Our ears do the work of transmitting taste signals to our brain so that we can taste our food.
- Excessive ear wax can impair hearing.
- We get strange feeling in our ears when we go high up on mountains because Eustachian tube in our ear fails to maintain pressure.
- Every sound that we hear gets amplified in the middle ear.
- Our outer ear has a job of directing every sound further inside.
- Exposure to terribly loud sounds like 85 decibels or higher can cause permanent loss of hearing.
- There are more than 20,000 small hairs in our ears which are known as cilia.
- The smallest bone of our body, the stirrup bone is located in our ear.
- Our ear canal replaces itself every ear.
