Outer Ear

  • Earl D. Schubert
Part of the Disorders of Human Communication 1 book series (DISORDERS, volume 1)


A highly schematized view of the parts of the peripheral auditory system is shown in Fig. 1. It is drawn for clarity rather than accuracy, and serves, for our present purposes, to highlight the relation between the outer ear and the eardrum. For reasons touched on in the introduction, the external ear has been a subject of interest longer than the rest of the system.
