Hearing: One of the Five Senses
What is hearing
Hearing is one of the five senses. It occurs through the auditory system. It is the ear of vertebrates that perceives sound waves, enabling the process of hearing.
The process of sound perception (hearing) is due to the vibration of a material object that acts with physical stimulation.
Under normal conditions, vibration is transmitted from the object, reaching the ear, through a ripple movement in the air particles (sound waves).
