  • The middle ear also has the Eustachian tube which helps equalize pressure and drain out mucus.
  • Ear infections are more common in kids because of their developing immune system and owing to differences between their Eustachian tubes and those of adults.
  • The inner ear is found inside the temporal bone which is the hardest bone in the human body.
  • The inner ear contains a spiral shaped hearing organ called the cochlea and also the vestibule and semicircular canals which helps with balance.
  • Sounds waves are passed from air to liquid in the inner air. The inner air has tiny hair cells which respond to sound waves that lead to triggering chemicals that are sent off to the brain as nerve impulses.
  • Abnormalities in the inner ear of humans could cause deafness.
  • Skin glands in the ear canal produce ear wax which s protect the ear by lubrication and cleaning it of dirt and dust.
  • Excessive ear wax can also impair hearing, mainly if it is pressed hard against the eardrum.
