"Hear" in context

The ability to hear is an important sense that allows us to react to sounds and interpret our surroundings. By being able to detect things like mating calls of animals, alarms, and anything audible, hearing has allowed animals including humans to subsist, protect themselves and find one another. We typically hear using our outer ear - consisting of the pinna, external auditory canal and tympanic membrane that vibrate when movement of air sends sound waves through them and to the ear drum.

In order to interpret and understand sound, the vibrations are then converted into nerve signals and sent to the brain along the cochlear nerve.
