Anatomy and PhysiologyEar
 The ear is divided into 3 main regions: the external ear, which collects soundwaves and channels them inward; the middle ear, which convey soundvibration to the oval window; and the internal ear, which houses thereceptors for hearing and equilibriumExternal ( Outer) ear The external or outer ear consist of the auricle, external auditory canal, andeardrum. The auricle (pinna) is a flap of elastic cartilage shape like the flaredand of a trumpet and covered by skin. The rim of the auricle is the helix; theinferior portion of the lobule. Ligaments and muscles attach the auricle tothe head. The external auditory canal (audit=hearing) is a curved tube about2.5 cm long that lies in the temporal bone and leads from the auricle to theeardrum. The eardrum or tympanic membrane (tympan= a drum) is a thin,semitransparent partition between the external auditory canal and middleear. The eardrum is covered by epidermis and lined by simple cuboidalepithelium. Between the epithelial layers is connective tissue composed of collagen, elastic fibers, and fibroblasts. Near the exterior, the externalauditory canal contains a few hairs and specialized sebaceous glands calledceruminous glands that secret earwax or cerumen. The combination of hairsand cerumen prevent dust and foreign objectives from entering the ear.Cerumen usually dries up and falls out of the ear canal. Some people,however, produce a large amount of cerumen, which can become impactedand can muffle incoming sounds.Middle ear The middle is a small, air-filled cavity in the temporal bone that is lined byepithelium. It is separated from the external ear by the eardrum and fromthe internal ear by a thin bony partition that contains 2 small membrane-covered opening: the oval window and the round window.
