Latest Auditory system Stories
Scientists have long suspected that the eardrum evolved separately in mammals and diapsids, the taxonomic group that includes reptiles and birds. However, because the eardrum cannot be fossilized, this theory could not be proved through the fossil record.

The ear is an organ from the auditory system that collects sounds, and also balances and enables body position. Formation and Orientation The ear can be broken down into the inner and outer ears. The outer part of the ear is the visible flap (auricle) and ear canal which collects sounds which create pressure that echoes through the middle ear. The inner ear, however, is embedded in the temporal bone. There are hollow areas of the inner ear that are filled with liquids and hair cells...
In 1861 Adam Politzer of Vienna spent much time studying the air movement in the Eustachian tubes and the ear canal. He would measure the air movement by attaching a manometer, a very large gauge, to the ear canal and the pharynx. He developed an apparatus known as the Politzer bag in 1863 which is a less invasive way to clear the Eustachian tubes. Procedure Politzerization, also known as the Politzer maneuver, is a medical procedure which inserts air in the middle ear while the patient...
The incus (anvil) bone is an anvil-shaped small bone in the middle ear. It connects the malleus to the stapes. This bone was first described by Alessandro Achillini of Bologna. This bone also transmits sound vibrations from the malleus to the stapes. The incus bone is only found in mammals. The bone, which is derived from a reptilian upper jaw bone (the quadrate bone), embryologically derives from the first pharyngeal arch along with the rest of the bones of mastication, such as the...
