Ear and hearing. Computer artwork of a human ear and radiating lines representing sound waves entering the ear canal. The part of the ear seen here is the outer ear, or pinna. This is shaped to channel sound waves into the middle and inner parts of the ear (not seen). The middle and inner ear help convert the sound waves into electrical signals that are received by the brain and interpreted as sounds.
