  1. Pinna                   =the pinna is the outside of your ear that picks up sounds. It might not seem that important but it plays a big role in protecting the inner ear.
  2. Auditory Canal  =Basically, the auditory canal links the outer ear to the ear drum. It carries the vibrations from outer ear to the inner ear.
  3. Eardrum              = The eardrum carries sound vibrations into the body, by vibrating at the same frequency as the sound waves striking it.
  4. Ossicles              = Transmits sounds to the cochlea
  5.  Oval Window    = -( i forgot .... can you all tell me what is the Oval Windows function ???)
  6. Semicircular canals =It is the organ for the sense of balance. If you get a serious ear infection on that organ, you can't stand up straight.
  7. Cochlea                = the sense organ that translates sound into nerve impulses to be sent to the brain.
