- The human ear collects sounds and then send them to the brain to be processesd.
- Your ears are also a big part of helping keep a person’s balance.
- The ear is made up of three different sections: the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. All three parts play an important role in healing people hear and process sounds.
- The outer ear is located on the outside of the head. It is called the pinna or auricle.
