    Corti The organ of Corti releases chemical messengers when the vibrations from the stapes activate its tiny hair cells These then excite the nerves of hearing which carry sound to the brain The Central Auditory Pathways The central auditory system is a complex network of neural pathways in the brain that is responsible for sound localization speech understanding in noisy listening situations and other complex sounds including music perception The Proscess of Hearing Sound is transformed into mechanical energy by the tympanic membrane It is then transmitted through the ossicles to the inner ear where it is changed again into hydraulic energy for transmission through the fluid filled cochlea The cochlea s hair cells are stimulated by the fluid waves and a neurochemical event takes place that excites the nerves of hearing The physical characteristics of the original sound are preserved at every energy change along the way until this code becomes one the brain can recognize and process Hearing loss misleads our brain with a loss of audibility and introduces distortion into the message that reaches the brain Changes in the effectiveness of the brain to process stimuli from head trauma disease or from aging can result in symptoms that mimic hearing loss The ears and the brain combine in a remarkable way to process neural events into the sense of hearing Perhaps it s fair to say that we hear with our brain not with our ears If you suspect that you or a loved one is experiencing hearing loss give us a call at 901 415 6667 and the licensed professionals of the Shea Hearing Aid Center will gladly arrange for you to have a FREE hearing evaluation Share Leave a Comment Fields with are required Name Email Comment Verification Code Please enter the letters as they
