a: auditory nerve ~
b: a piano


"The auditory nerve is like a piano - if you were to unroll the cochlea which is the shape of a "snail", the analogy is that it would look like a piano with all the white and black keys. We have a nerve for every pitch or tone. It is these nerves that are typically damaged with hearing loss. Either noise has caused damage to these nerves or as we age - our hearing nerves will deteriorate."
