About the Author More ArticlesAbout Leah BroukhimLeah Broukhim is a junior at Beverly Hills High School. In a normally working system, sound first is collected by the pinna, which is the cartilage portion of the ear that is visible on the outside. When the vibrations sent to the inner ear are too strong it can damage the eardrum, ossicles, or cochlea. If you would like to speak with one of our physicians regarding this issue or another ear, nose, throat problem; or have other questions or concerns, please complete the contact form below or call us at 310-657-0123. She is a member of the Science Olympiad Team, tutors elementary students, and volunteers at Sunrise Senior Living.


It is designed to provide reliable medical information in a format that is easy to understand.
The vibrations are sent to three smaller bones (ossicles) within the ear called the malleus, incus, and stapes. As Chief of Medical Resources, I hold an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles and a graduate degree in Medical Science from the University of Southern California. These smaller bones send the vibrations to the cochlea (a snail shaped sac of fluid), causing tiny hair cells in the cochlea to bend. These hair cells are attached to nerves and when they bend, it produces an electrical signal which is carried to the brain.
