This constitutes the mechanism of amplification of sound in the ear. Davis showed that where the ear is most sensitive, the amplitude of vibration of the eardrum is less than the diameter of a hydrogen molecule [6]. 10 Koga ~ \~ oc Fig. 2.

SV: Scala vestibule ST: Scala tympani OC: Organ of Corti. 2) The inner ear lies in a coiled bony canal with openings at each end; sound enters at the vestibular window and exits through the cochlear window.

Recently, Kemp discovered that the hairs of hair cells vibrate actively, producing faint sounds in the inner ear; these sounds were detected using a computerized microphone. This mechanism has been used as a test of inner ear function, and the test is called the oto-acoustic emission test. When one suffers from inner ear or auditory nerve hearing loss, hearing via bone conduction is also impaired. o uod Spirnl gangrion Cochlear nuclei Fig. 3.
