What is the main organ of hearing?
The Cochlea is our organ of hearing, which is in close proximity
to the Semi-circular canals that control our sense of balance. The
Cochlea, Semi-circular canals and the Cochlear nerve comprise the
parts of the Inner Ear. Sound passes to the Inner Ear via the
vibrations of the Middle Ear bones, which are connected to the
Cochlea at one end. Thousands of tiny sensory hair cells within the
Cochlea convert the vibrations into an electro-chemical signal
that's carried by the auditory nerve to the brain, where sound is
processed and interpreted.
