The Science of Hearing

Visitors will learn which parts of the brain are in charge of processing different sounds, and how to protect their ears from noise-induced hearing loss. Children will be able to learn how hearing tests are done, and learn brain anatomy related to sound processing.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to play a computer-based game to learn about hearing speech, sound, and noise. Children will also learn about cochlear implant devices, and how the biopic ear works to restore hearing to individuals who have severe hearing loss.
