*  Ear: Anatomy with cochlear frequency mapping | Medical Images
The human ear and frequency mapping in the cochlea. The three ossicles incus, malleus, and stapes transmit airborne vibration from the tympanic membrane to the oval window at the base of the cochlea. Because of the mechanical properties of the basilar membrane within the snail-shaped cochlea, high frequencies will produce a vibration peak near the oval window, whereas low frequencies will stimulate receptors near the apex of the cochlea (locations for three frequencies indicated schematically). Information from the cochlear receptor cells is transmitted to the cochlear nuclei via the 8th cranial nerve, and on through the midbrain to the cortex. Source: Wikimedia commons. ...

*  Advanced Hearing - AIOVideo.com
The Mechanism of Hearing The human ear is divided into three parts. 1. the outer ear 2. the middle ear 3. the inner ear Air-conducted sound waves must move through these three parts in order for sound to be heard. The outer ear serves to channel the sound waves into the middle ear which is composed of three bones. These three bones mechanically transmit these waves to the oval window, which is part of the inner ear. The oval window vibrates inwardly, creating pressure waves in an incompress. ...

*  The Ear's Protective Mechanisms
A young person's ear can provide a limited amount of protection from sustained loud sounds by shifting the stirrup backward so that it doesn't exert as much force on the oval window. In the very young, the stirrup is thought to be capable of actually breaking contact with the oval window, breaking the direct link to the inner ear. In an older ear, the structures become stiffer and cannot adjust backward as much. Older persons are generally less tolerant of loud sounds. ...

*  What's Inside Our Ear? (or how do we hear?)
The Stirrup rests on a thin sheet of tissue called the Oval Window that covers an opening in the Cochlea. The vibrating Stirrup passes the vibrations to the Oval Window, which starts a fluid inside the Cochlea moving. This moving fluid pushes and pulls on the cells in the Cochlea that change the energy in the movements into electrical energy signals sent to the nerves. All of these nerves join up to form the main Hearing, or Auditory Nerve that carries the signals to the hearing center in the brain. The brain tells us what we hear and decides if we should do anything in response ...

From a family who met her summer 2015: This little girl is wonderful! I have never met a child with so much personality and spunk. She absolutely loves people and she is so desperate for attention. I held her for most of our visitation time one day. If I tried to put her down she demanded that I pick her up again and then she would kiss all over me. She just wanted someone to be near her. Everyday when my husband would walk through the playground gates she would get a stern look on her face and point at him and then motion for him to come to her… NOW:) She would smile from ear to ear when he acknowledged her. You can not help but laugh when you are with her. Even the cold and distant nannies couldn't keep a solemn expression on their faces ...
