the stuff between your ears, including the ears
From the shape of your ears to bits of your brain, and just a little bit about fish for some reason, have a listen to how we listen.
In this episode, I speak briefly about the vOICe. Here’s a roughly five-minute demo of this app that turns camera images into sound, so that the blind can see with their ears.
Here’s a link to the vOICe website.
Here’s a video that explains how the ear turns sounds into brain activity.
Here’s something on what the brain does with the sound once it’s inside the brain.
Here’s a video with details on the funny little snail-shaped thing in your inner ear called the “cochlea.”
Here’s a jargon heavy thing on the amplification of sound that happens within the cochlea.
Here’s a bit about the cochlear nucleus.
Here’s some stuff on fish hearing.
More heavy jargon, about cerebellum like structures in fish that hear, sense the motion of water, and can sense electricity.
