Why does cold weather cause runny noses?

User Avatar
A couple different cold-weather factors contribute to there being just too much fluid for the nose to hold (gross, I know, but true). First, because winter air tends to be very dry, the nose has to produce a lot of extra fluid to humidify it properly on its way to the lungs. Sometimes it makes so much that it runs right out the end of the nose. What’s more, when that warm, moisturized air gets breathed back out into cold, dry surroundings, it condenses on the cold tip of the nose, adding even more fluid.

What is the correct sequence of structures through which sound waves are sent to the brain?

User Avatar
Sound waves hit a human ear and pass through the eardrum by vibrating the hammer, anvil, and stirrup of the middle ear. These vibrations become a pressure wave that affects the fluid of the inner ear where they become electrical nerve impulses sent to and interpreted by the brain as sound.

Asked by Keely Schneider in Head, Ears, and Nose, Air Travel

Why do your ears pop when you're on an airplane (and how can you stop it)?

User Avatar
Your ears pop because of the difference in pressure between the air inside your ear and the air outside. As you get higher up, the air is less dense, meaning there’s less air pressure pushing on your eardrum from the outside and more pressure on it from the inside. The ear regulates its internal pressure through structures called the eustachian tubes, and when these tubes open and allow outside air into the ear, we experience that as a pop. With that in mind, you don’t want to stop your ears from popping; rather, you want to encourage it. Tricks to avoid uncomfortable pressure on your eardrum include anything that encourages frequent swallowing, like chewing gum. Yawning also helps. Or, you could try something called the Valsalva maneuver, which entails holding your nose shut, closing your mouth, and gently blowing, as if you were blowing your nose.

Is it possible to experience memory loss after a traumatic event?

User Avatar
Yes. When someone experiences a traumatic situation, his brains are capable of trying to 'protect' him against that experience because he and his body can't handle what happened. It's also possible that someone has memory loss after that person get hit on his head in an accident. Like a car crash..

The three bones of the inner ear are designed to pick up sound waves from the ear drum and send the signals to the brain for interpretation. It is similar to the ear piece of a telephone receiver.
