  40. How does hearing work
    The stapes transmits pressure waves to the perilymph which is then passed along the scala vestibuli and tympani, before reaching the round window. The oval window bulges in and the round window bulges out, which causes the perilymph to rock back and forth until the energy of the pressure waves dissipate. This causes waves in the basilar membrane which sets up shears between the basilar and tectorial membranes, causing depolarization of the membrane of the hair cells, which stimulates the associated neuron to send information to the brain, resulting in hearing.
