The significance of the ear for important skills

● A person controls his or her verbal and vocal expression through the ear and through the processing of those acoustic impressions in the brain. This applies to overall communication as well as to singing, reading and writing. All these skills are dependent on a good sense of hearing.
● The vestibule helps people with spatial orientation and enables balance as well as walking upright. There is a close relationship between spatial and organizational structures, timing and a sense of rhythm, gross and fine motor skills and a good functioning of the organ of equilibrium.
● Auditory impressions influence the nervous system that is not controllable by will (vegetative nervous system). Constant noise, for example, causes stress and may cause sleep disorders or cardiovascular diseases. Unlike the eye, the ear cannot be “closed”. Therefore, the relation between outer stimuli and their effect on the body may be a more sensitive one than with other organs.
