Auricle: The auricle is the outermost, external structure of the outer ear. The auricle is located in the temporal bone area and is made up of cartilage and skin. It plays a role in funnelling sound waves into the external auditory meatus.
Sound waves travel through the outer ear, into the middle ear where they cause vibration of the tympanic membrane. These vibrations are then transmitted through the auditory bones and into the cochlea of the inner ear. In the inner ear, sound vibrations are converted into electrical impulses and carried by the 8th cranial nerve to the brain.
Conditions that can afflict the auricle include auricle infection, absence of auricle, malformations of auricle, and trauma.
