This is an example interactive diagram created using the Wikidiagrams library. One aim of the project is to provide interactive diagrams that explain everything to do with Audacity. The code is also expected to be useful for other code projects, and eventually for Wikipedia too, for biochemical pathways and other interactive diagrams.

This is the spec for the interactive diagram which shows the structure of the Ear. There's an interactive demo.

This is one of three related pages. The other two are:

The detailed data for the regions, buttons and tooltips follows.

This is the chooser object.

The Ear

Sound is transformed from pressure waves in air to vibrations of tiny bones, to movement in cells that generate electrical impulses in the auditory nerve.

Middle Ear

The middle

ear has tiny bones that transmit vibrations from the outer ear to the inner ear

Inner Ear

The cochlear of the inner ear is a spiral shaped organ that has nerve cells that respond to different frequencies of sound.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

The Ear

Sound is transformed from pressure waves in air to vibrations of tiny bones, to movement in cells that generate electrical impulses in the auditory nerve.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Middle Ear

The middle

ear has tiny bones that transmit vibrations in the tympanic membrane from the

outer ear to the inner ear.

CLICK LOAD SPEC=Middle_Ear_Anatomy


NEXTZONE:TIP=

Inner Ear

The cochlear of the inner ear is a spiral shaped organ that has nerve cells that respond to different frequencies of sound.

CLICK LOAD SPEC=Inner_Ear_Anatomy
NEXTZONE:TIP=

Elastic Cartilages

Elastic cartilage holds the shape of the outer ear. The shape of the outer ear is important, as it helps collect sounds and aids in determining direction of sound. Bone would be brittle and at risk of being broken.

Elastic Cartilage

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Auditory Ossicles

The ossicles are tiny bones that transmit sound from the tympanic membrane to the oval window. Muscles can tighten and slacken so as to make this system for transmitting sound more or less sensitive.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Semicircular Canals

The semicircular canals are concerned with balance and equilibrium

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Vestibule

The vestibule of the ear is also concerned with balance and equilibrium. Like the cochlea, it contains 'hair cells' which are sensitive to motion.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Auditory Nerve

The auditory nerves conduct signals from the ears to the brain. There is also auditory processing in the nerves.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Cochlea

The Cochlea is a spiral shaped organ that has standing waves of sound in it. The spiral shape is relevant to its ability to sensitively sense different frequencies of sound.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Round Window

The round window helps in equalising the pressure of the fluid in the inner ear. It moves outwards as the oval window is pushed in, and vice versa.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Auditory Tube

The Auditory tube equalises pressure between the inside and outside of the ear. This is related to the sensation of 'ears popping' when flying.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Oval Window

The oval window is a membrane that transmits vibrations in the ossicles to the fluid in the inner ear. It is oval rather than round, so that it transmits all relevant frequencies. Were it round, there would be characteristic frequencies that it absorbed more than others.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Tympanic Cavity

The Tympanic Cavity is an air filled region of the inner ear

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Tympanic Membrane

The Tympanic membrane or ear drum converts vibrations of sound in air to vibrations of the ossicles

NEXTZONE:TIP=

External Acoustic Meatus

The ear canal brings sound to the middle ear. The inner structures of the ear are housed in a bony compartment, whereas the outer ear is outside the skull and uses cartilage to hold its shape.

NEXTZONE:TIP=

Auricle

The auricle is the outermost part of the ear

Ear Canal

The ear canal

(external acoustic meatus) brings sound to the middle ear.  The inner
structures of the ear are housed in a bony compartment, whereas the auricle is
outside the skull and uses cartilage to hold its shape.
