Caption: Illustration entitled "A Dissection of the Ear". The sense of hearing results from the conduction of sound waves through air, bone & fluid to nerves connecting with the cerebral cortex in the temporal lobes of the brain. Sound waves pass down the ear canal & strike the eardrum (light grey). Vibrations are transmitted via the tiny ear bones (from malleus to incus to stapes) into the fluid-filled cochlea of the inner ear (leftmost grey coils). Inside the cochlea, the movement of tiny hair cells causes the activation of nerve cells (nerves are in yellow). ALL MORAL RIGHTS ASSERTED. CROPPING OR ANY DEROGATORY TREATMENT FORBIDDEN.
