Toolbox/Inner Ear Anatomy

From Audacity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


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 Inner Ear:

DISPLAY_FOCUS_DETAIL Focus=SmallCircle
  BUTTON_ROW
  IMAGE_WITH_HOTSPOTS

The specification above builds a simple focus-detail display. 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.

BUTTON:LABEL=Ear;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.

Toolbox/The_Ear

BUTTON:LABEL=Middle;TIP=

Middle Ear

The middle ear has tiny bones that transmit pressure from the outer ear to the inner ear.

BUTTON:LABEL=Inner;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.

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.
