Slide 1
Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology of the Ear
The ear is the organ of hearing.
Auditory System: Three components
Outer ear
Middle ear
Inner ear

Worked together to transfer sounds from the environment to the brain.

Slide 2

How Sounds are Collected?

The visible part of the outer ear collected sounds and directed it through the outer ear canal
The sound travel into the middle ear making the eardrum vibrates; this cause a series of three tiny bones ( the hammer, the anvil, and the stirrup) in the middle ear to to vibrate.
The vibration is transferred to the snail-shaped ccochlear in the inner ear
The cochlear has sensitive hair which trigger the generation of nerve signals sent to the brain

Slide 3

How do we hear?

-Outer ear collect sound waves that travel down the external auditory canal and strike the eardrum (tympanic membrane).
-The eardrum vibrates and the vibrations are sent to the three tiny bones in the middle ear called the ossicles.
-The ossicles amplify the sound and send the sound waves to the inner ear and into the fluid filled hearing organs called the cochlea.
- Sound waves that reach the inner ear are converted into electrical impulses and the auditory nerve sends it to the brain.
- The brain then translates these electrical impulses as sound.

Slide 4

Outer Ear
Outer ear is composed of three parts: - ear canal
External auditory canal or tube - the tube that connects the outer ear to the middle ear

Pinna or auricle
-The pinna is the visible part of the ear where sound is collected
-Sounds is directed to the outer ear canal

-tympanic membrane - also called eardrum. It divides the external ear from the ...

Solution Summary

The ear provides us with a remarkable range of hearing. The ear is divided into three regions, the inner ear, the middle ear, and the outer ear. The outer and middle ear are responsible for hearing, while the inner ear regulate the sense of equilibrium and balance.

Basic function of a cell

This is a presentation on histology, the study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues. You must make at least 15 slides that provide your audience with information on the histology of two tissues, epithelium and connective tissue. Your slides should include the following sections:

Discuss the importance of a cell and why it is considered the basic functional unit of life
Define the function, general structure, and give examples of epithelial tissue: simple vs. stratified; squamous, cuboidal, columnar, and pseudostratified columnar
Define the function, general structure, and give examples of connective tissue: CT proper, loose and dense; cartilage (three types); bone (two types); and blood (RBCs, WBCs, and platelets)
Label images of histological slides of the skin, including the regions (epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis) and the epithelial and CT tissue types in each region.
I recommend you use the following resource located on our class bookshelf in e-brary: Comparative Veterinary Histology with Clinical Correlates to get started.
Your SLP's for this course will be a series of PowerPoint presentations. Each presentation will include speaker notes. Please be mindful of formatting and scholarly content as outlined below:


The power point presentation should be attractive, balanced and flow logically.

The following site will help you with your PowerPoint presentation:


Scholarly Content

Since the presentation will include information that you are obtaining from other areas, you will need to include appropriate references. References used in the power point presentation should be cited using APA format, and a comprehensive reference list should appear on the final slide(s). PLEASE NOTE: Wikipedia is not considered scholarly.

Speaker notes

What are speaker notes?

As you recall, the PowerPoint slides should only give your audience some "key" points about the topic. You should not try to "cram" your slides full of information as this makes your slides appear sloppy and too "busy". Speaker notes can help the presenter remember everything that he or she wants to say about a particular slide.

Keep in mind- speaker notes are REQUIRED---they serve as the written portion of your SLP. The slides are one part of your SLP, but the speaker notes show you have taken the wide range of materials presented in each module and organized them into a logical, sequential presentation.

How do I make speaker notes?

Follow these simple steps to add speaker notes to your PowerPoint presentation:

Open your PowerPoint presentation
Go to the "View" menu and select the "Notes" page.
The notes page will be small, so you will have to go to the "View" menu again and select "Zoom" in order to make them bigger. Select the percentage of zoom that you want (the higher the percentage, the larger the page will become).
Click inside the notes page and begin typing your speaker notes.
Continue doing this on each slide until your speaker notes are written.
Once you have finished writing your speaker notes, save your presentation

THEME : Teaching your first Anatomy & Physiology course!

Teach an anatomy and physiology course for a local vocational nursing school. In order to do this, you are going to need to prepare a PowerPoint presentation that will be used in your lectures.

- Number of Slides: 15
- Content of Slides: Presentation should address each of the areas listed above.
- You will find some histology references on your bookshelf to help you

Speaker Notes

Each slide will contain speaker notes sufficient to accomplish topics 1-4 listed above (what you would say to a live audience if you were presenting this information).
