This functional ear model shows how the tympanic membrane, ossicles, the complex internal ear with the cochlea and the oscillations of the basilar hearing membrane operate/interact. The enclosed mirror enables operation of the functional ear model for the studying of various ear-functions from different angles at the same time. One single ear model may be studied by several students simultaneously in an action-oriented learning situation. Functional ear includes a four-color explanatory chart. Don't just teach the anatomy and function of the human ear, show it!
