Ears are the doorway to the brain

We tend to think that we hear with our ears and any hearing difficulties are only connected with this body part. But actually, we hear with the brain; our ears are only helping us to get sound knowledge to the brain. We can compare ears to a doorway. Therefore we can represent hearing loss as a “doorway problem”, because the ears are the doorway to the brain for auditory information. The doorway can be obstructed a little or a lot (depending on the hearing loss), which means that sound knowledge is not reaching the brain clearly. Please watch this short video from Dr Flexer, explaining this with great understanding.
