We use our ears to hear with. The only visible part of the hearing organ is the pinna. It collects the sound and conducts it into the ear canal. If somebody wants to understand better, they automatically hold their hand up to the ear to increase the size of the funnel. That has no immediate effect but has, in the meantime, become a sort of automatic gesture.

Information and ideas:
Introductory picture to the subject "Hearing" and into the discussion of the hearing process. What happens after the sound is picked up by the pinna?
