Jim Hudspeth: The beautiful, mysterious science of how you hear-

www.ted.com/talks/jim_hudspeth_the_beautiful_mysterious_science_of_how_you_hear?language=en

"Have you ever wondered how your ears work? In this delightful and fascinating talk, biophysicist Jim Hudspeth demonstrates the wonderfully simple yet astonishingly powerful mechanics of hair cells, the microscopic powerhouses that make hearing possible -- and explains how, when it's really quiet, your ears will begin to beam out a spectrum of sounds unique to you."

I heard him today on NPR- Did you know that chickens can repair their hearing loss when damaged?
