How Does The Human Body Receive Electrical Stimuli?
explain the process of nerve electricity that occurs when the human body receives stimuli in the form of sounds or sounds
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. To answer your question, you need to understand the anatomy or arrangement of the hearing organ or ear. For that, consider the image below.
The process of hearing starts from sound waves in the air. The wave is captured and focused into the ear canal by the auricle. That is why the earlobe has a groove, so that the concentration of sound waves is easier to do. Sound waves then travel through the ear canal, and reach the eardrum (tympanic membrane). The eardrum will then vibrate back and forth like the membrane on the loudspeaker, the difference is in the eardrum, this vibration will move the hearing bones, which in the picture are given the description of malleus, incus and stapes.
The three auditory bones that vibrate from the eardrum will also move the other end, which attaches to a structure called the cochlea or the cochlea. Behind this cochlea are nerve cell fibers which, when moved, will change the action potential and ultimately convert sound waves into electrical waves. The electricity that has been generated by this cochlea will then flow along the auditory nerve, to the hearing center in the brain, and give us an understanding of what we hear.
Any abnormality in this structure can cause hearing loss. Therefore, problems with the ear to be diagnosed should have a thorough examination by an ENT doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
