Problem 8

Why can a squirrel jump from a tree branch to the ground and run away undamaged, while a human could break a bone in such a fall?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Block 4 lecture 2 - Auditory and Vestibular Systems 1. Describe the function of the outer, middle, and inner ear Outer ear - sound collection Middle ear - sound amplification Inner ear - detection and balance 2. Describe two structures in the outer, middle, and inner ear that are responsible for the function described above Outer ear​ - external acoustic canal, tympanic membrane Middle ear​ - Auditory ossicles - malleus, incus, and stapes, oval window attached to cochlea Inner ear​ - Organ of corti, vestibule, semicircular canals. 3. Discuss how the Organ of Corti dectes sound vibration Hair cells on basal membrane are moved when the membrane is moved, causes the cilia on the hair cells the move the techtool membrane, thus moving the scala vestibuli. 4. Describe the tonotopic organization of the basilar membrane Apex = low frequency Basal - high frequency 5. Compare the contribution of the semicircular canals and vestibule to balance Vestibule - linear movement Semicircular canal - rotational
