Ear Structures and Functions Song


Our ear is made up of many components In the middle, outer, and inner ear. In the outer ear, there is the pinna It’s the fleshy part that captures the sound There is also the auditory canal It looks like a tube, functions to amplify the sound It has hair and wax to prevent foreign things From entering deeper into the ear And then, there is, the eardrum Also called the tympanus You gotta know all your structures Know the pathway of the waves Pinna, ear canal, eardrum, malleus, Anvil, stirrup, and oval window Sound are passed on To the organ of Corti Auditory nerves sense the message And pass it to the brain The eardrum passes sound to the malleus Amplifying the sound to anvil and stapes Then it goes to the oval window Which connects the middle and inner ear We shouldn’t forget Eustachian tube It equalizes pressure in the middle ear By being connected to the outside of the throat In the organ of Corti There are hair cells that bend to send signals to the brain You gotta know all your structures Know the pathway of the waves Pinna, ear canal, eardrum, malleus, Anvil, stirrup, and oval window The sound waves are passed on To the organ of Corti Auditory nerves sense the message And pass it to the brain Semicircular Canals are fluid filled Rotations make the fluid move Bending hair in the cupula You gotta know all your structures Know the pathway of the waves Pinna, ear canal, eardrum, malleus, Anvil, stirrup, and oval window Sounds are passed on To the organ of Corti Auditory nerves sense the message And pass it to the brain Utricle and saccule, together called the vestibule Contain otoliths that put pressure on the hair
