Sample text

The vibration of the eardrum is passed onto three bones in the middle ear, referred to collectively as the ossicles or individually as the malleus, the inca, and the stapes. The ossicles are the smallest bones in the human body. 2 Hearing with Ear and Brain 27 highly sensitive to vibration, and can increase the power of these vibrations by a factor of 20! The inner ear, called the cochlea, is filled with fluid. In order for the ossicles to create a pressure difference that will propagate well in the new, fluid medium they must concentrate the force of vibrations at the oval window, a bridge between middle ear and the cochlea directly connected to the stapes.

That means 2,230,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible combinations! With so many possible combinations of notes, it is unlikely that they form exact correlations with emotions. However, given that emotions can be graded on a continuous scale, this may be possible, but a second problem is approached. g. , not all fast pieces are happy, many are agitated). Additionally, the same piece of music can cause different people to experience different emotions. If music were isomorphic with emotions, how could people have vastly differing interpretations of the same piece?

In addition to the oval window, the cochlea has a round window which dampens the vibrations after having traveled through the cochlea. Without the round window, the residual vibration would cause us to hear everything twice, like an echo. This would inundate the brain with an excessive amount of auditory information. 1 mm Fig. 20: Section of Cochlea.
